Abstract

Referring to an unhappy report, the aim of this paper consists to analyse the quality of the economic growth in DRC. To analyze this problem, two approaches were used like the approach of the pro-poor growth and the inclusive growth. It results from this analysis that the economic growth in DRC is the anti-poor growth and is of type "impoverishing growth": the growth has really a positive impact on the reduction of poverty but this effect is destroyed by the great inequalities between the various strata of society which, all things considered, increase poverty. Concerning the inclusive growth, the different curves of social opportunity and the inclusiveness matrix testify to the non-inclusivity of the growth in DRC. It is noted that the average income of the population increases but this income redistribution is very inequitable.
