Lubumbashi

 

Business

Despite the International financial crisis it appears that this part of Congo is still growing economically.

The mining activity in Katanga is the main reason for this ongoing development. The large numbers of lorries that travel between Lubumbashi and Kasumbelesa on the Zambian border on a daily basis, transporting copper and other minerals as well as cement is evidence of the  thriving economy.

The service industries including the banks, communications business and supermarkets appeat to be growing in Lubumbashi.
