DR Congo Senate approves Inga Treaty

Issue 280 - 01 Jul 2014 | 4 minute read
The Senate on 6 June approved a bill authorising ratification of the Grand Inga Treaty with South Africa. The treaty, signed in Kinshasa on 29 October by presidents Joseph Kabila and Jacob Zuma, confirmed the commitment of both countries to set up the necessary structures for the implementation of the Grand Inga project. While highlighting the regional and integrating nature of the project, its 21 articles recognise DRC’s ownership and sovereignty over the Inga site, as well as the country’s leadership role in the development of Inga through the Agence pour le Développement et la Promotion d’Inga, to be established later this year.
