SADC: Tshisekedi supports the integration of the DRC to interconnect the sub-region

Addressing SADC heads of state and government on Saturday, August 17, 2019, the President of the Republic, Félix-Antoine Tshisekedi reiterated his determination to make national integration a reality. According to him, this means setting up adequate infrastructures to interconnect with the vast programs of the sub-region.

While it is clear that DR Congo remains an important link in the development of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), its national integration would undoubtedly boost the regional and continental integration supported by Felix Antoine Tshisekedi since his inauguration. .

« My wish is to see very quickly all the populations of our Sub-region moving freely from the Indian Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, from Dar Es Salaam to Lobito, from Mombassa to Banana, from Aru to Durban« , said Congolese head of state.

Félix Antoine Tshisekedi who also intends to continue the implementation of its policy of proximity with all the countries of the SADC affirms that his country remains ready to play the role expected of him for the accomplishment of the ambitious program of regional integration in the respect and balance of interests of each country.

To the President of the Republic to indicate: « the development of energy resources, especially electricity, is a major asset for the industrialization of our countries. In this respect, the DRC offers many opportunities for SADC. Properly exploited, my country’s potential could meet the needs of the entire subregion, and beyond, of Africa as a whole.  »

Whether it is its population, its area, its ecosystem, its soil and its subsoil, its hydroelectric and mining potential, the DRC has potential that offer an opportunity for wealth creation and development of populations .

« I firmly believe that the foundations of this Summit will lead to concrete proposals to create a secure and commercial environment conducive to inclusive and sustainable industrial development in our SADC space, » he concluded.

Heads of State and SADC member governments meet in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania for the 39th summit. Their theme is: « A business environment conducive to inclusive and sustainable industrial development, increased intra-Community trade and job creation.  »
