DRC: Bussa notes the invalidity of the orders issued by the temporary worker in Foreign Trade

Foreign Trade Minister Jean-Lucien Bussa Tongba has just put an end to a series of flagrant irregularities in certain acts committed during the interim period. The latter violated the Prime Minister’s formal injunction given to the temporary workers on 22 March 2019 to refrain from making arrests pending the installation of the new Government.

Legalistic, the new Minister of Foreign Trade found in the remission files and repeated a series of ministerial orders issued during this period of current business being conducted by the acting minister.

Without, however, annulling them by a contrary act, Jean-Lucien Bussa merely declared them invalid. This means that they are considered null and void.

« Any economic operator concerned by these provisions is requested, as of today, to contact the services of the office of the Minister of Foreign Trade for a review of the files in accordance with the regulations in force« , according to an official press release dated 10 September 2019 received by Zoom Eco.

For Minister Jean – Lucien Bussa, it is a question of maintaining the momentum of the business climate through efficient regulation of imports and exports, in the best interests of the Republic.

It therefore invites the Secretary General for Foreign Trade, the General Directorate of Customs and Excise (DGDA), the Congolese Control Authority (OCC), the General Directorate of Migration (DGM) and the Directorate of the National Programme for Border Hygiene (PNHF), each in its own right, to comply with these provisions and to ensure their prompt implementation.
