Abstract

This work examines the possible impact of slower economic growth in major trading partners on the Congolese economy during the period 2013-2020. It also offers an alternative way to finance the economy. A dynamic and micro simulated computable general equilibrium model applied to the case of the D.R.Congo economy has been used. The results show the implications on the real sector, public finances and the balance of payments, and emphasize the importance of diversifying the structure of exports by focusing on agricultural products as an alternative solution.
