Edito of Mining and Business Magazine N°26
Everything seems to be back to normal as we close this issue. Some doubts remain, while the entire Republic is waiting for a government to form.

Impatience is growing, but the clouds that weigh on emerging hopes do not prevent the actors of our great country from showing dynamism and advancing their projects.

This new school year, rich in economic events, should once again demonstrate this.

Kinshasa will kickoff the show on 6 and 7 September with the return of the long-awaited

MAKUTANO. The “THINK & DO TANK”, which has established itself as one of the largest business networks built by and for Congolese people, is proud, for its 5th edition, to welcome a host of prestigious guests.

Mining & Business Magazine, media partner of this event, spoke with Nicole Sulu. This informed businesswoman, bubbling with energy, has become “Madame Makutano” in a few years. Another “public interest” event with which your magazine is associated, the EAST & CENTRAL MINING FORUM, will be held in Kigali on 28 and 29 October. Our neighbour Rwanda intends to take the regional leadership in mining. The Honourable Francis Gatare, CEO of the Rwandan Office of Mines, Oil and Gas (RMB) shares his views on this issue.

Blockchains, cryptomonnaies and the DRC. On July 18, all ministers present at the G7 Finance meeting were concerned about the emergence of the “Libra”: the virtual currency Facebook wants to launch is likely to threaten the sovereign attributes of states. M&B offers you an overview to better understand what this means for our country.

Finally, a word of encouragement to our dear schoolchildren and students and their dear parents, who are readapting to the rhythms of the new school year,

Many happy returns and best wishes to all....

Bruno ZIANA
