30 June marked the 59th anniversary of the DRC’s independence. True to their team spirit, our colleagues at Metalkol RTR celebrated the day with an energetic soccer match between the nationals and expats. The nationals won with a final score of 4-2.
The DRC faces a range of important social and economic challenges. Central to meeting these challenges is the strengthening of the national economy, to the benefit of all citizens. At ERG Africa we are proud of the way we support this agenda. Our work at key DRC mining sites contributes to national economic growth, while also improving access to employment and life development opportunities for the communities in which we operate. It is, of course, only through sustained efforts that our company is able to contribute in this way. We are committed to help build a positive and empowering future in this wonderful country.
