DRC reopens border with Republic of Congo to boost trade
font size    

The border between the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Republic of Congo in Luozi, Lower- Congo, which has remained closed for almost 10 years, reopened Sunday to the greater satisfaction of the people of the two countries.

The decision to reopen this border was taken by Simon Mbatshi Batshia, governor of Lower-Congo, in consultation with interior, decentralization and security minister Denis Kalume Numbi, in a bid to facilitate trade between the border populations of the two countries.

The region of Luozi in the DRC borders four departments in the Republic of Congo, notably Pool, Banza, Bouenza and Niari covering a total of 218 km. Out of the 10 administrative sectors in Luozi, six share a common border with the Republic of Congo.

The move is expected to contribute to the improvement of the socio-economic situation of the border populations of the two countries through enhancement of trade.
