The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known as DR Congo or DRC, is a central African country. Within its borders, dense jungles give way to the world’s greatest population of lowland gorillas, elephants and a multitude of other animals. With such magnificent wildlife and the continent’s best forest reserves located in its backyard, the country could become a leading destination for tourism. In addition to its natural beauty, DRC boasts an incredible wealth of natural resources and raw minerals – also the nation’s largest export. Although the country’s minerals also cause some of the greatest conflicts within the region, it is the hope that efforts by the UK and EU to eradicate trade conflict will create more transparent business practices and, eventually, a more prosperous nation. As the country’s economy develops, plans are being implemented to help the DRC capitalise on its two greatest assets. Currently, the UK provides assistance in a range of sectors that include humanitarian, health, education and business. The country is also turning its attention to improving infrastructure. While there is still significant progress to be made, there are systems that allow for travel and courier service to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
In regards to size, the DRC is the second largest country in Africa and the 11th largest in the world. It is also the 19th most populated nation in the world. Borders shared with the Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, Zambia and Angola, position it well as a hub for travel and business expansion. The country’s transportation infrastructure requires significant investments to help rebuild and expand. However, the DRC is fortunate to have the largest hydropower resources in Africa, which can help contribute to meeting energy demands. The addition of multiple domestic air routes has also given way to more reliable and faster parcel delivery services in the Democratic Republic of the Congo – although it is a nation that does not utilise postcodes.
Overall, the DRC faces a promising future. With a rich culture, pristine natural beauty and valuable natural resources, the country is well positioned for growth. Additionally, the international interest and commitments by the UK will bring the advent of more business, improved infrastructure and, as a result, cheaper courier services to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As of right now, there are several courier companies who can deliver your parcel to DRC. Of these, some of the most reliable and cost-effective are through My Parcel Delivery. The MPD International Drop-off service delivers within three to five days at just £29.63+VAT. [Prices correct as of 13/08/2015]
