Top Ten companies/employers in DRC?

Hi there everyone!

I am writing a post graduate paper on companies in Africa and their diversity.

Can you give me your ideas of who you rate as the top ten companies in DRC? I have heard BAT, Coca Cola and Vodacom mentioned as the best employers in the country are these the only ones? If you think there are top organisations operating DRC could you say why?

I have heard there are some great and not so great ones!

Many thanks for your time reading this, reply posts or PM's would be great!

Hi, I'm looking for information on "Top 10 Companies in the Democratic Republic of Congo" and "Top 10 Richest People List". Because after google and seeing your question, I am also interested.

If it is convenient for you, you want to know the progress or results of your research; or we can also do some information exchange.


Hello MacanyTsai,

This post is from 2013 and the initial poster hasn't logged since long. I am not sure at all you will get any info from him. If that can help maybe you could create your own topic on the Democratic Republic of Congo forum .

All the best,


Thx, appreciate ur suggestion! will do.
