The Republic of Congo’s path to inclusive economic growth will involve economic diversification, bolstered human capital, and support to improved public services and entrepreneurship. The digital economy provides leap-frogging opportunities to achieve these objectives.
The World Bank’s Digital Economy Assessment (DE4A) presents an overview of the enabling environment and current state of the digital economy in the Republic of Congo. It maps the current strengths and weaknesses that characterize the national digital economy ecosystem and identifies opportunities for future growth. The assessment is based on the five foundational pillars of the digital economy: (i) Digital Infrastructure; (ii) Digital Skills; (iii) Digital Platforms; (iv) Digital Financial Services; and (v) Digital Entrepreneurship.
