"The Cabinda Refinery, which will start operating shortly, will also help us," said the Congolese official.
Cited by Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA), Didier Budimbu also made it known that the DRC is considering building an oil pipeline to connect the country to Cabinda, allowing for a reduction in the import of oil products from the Netherlands.
"We are thinking about how to build an oil pipeline that will connect Cabinda to the Democratic Republic of Congo instead of importing products from the Netherlands. The DRC is a big market, the city of Kinshasa alone has 14 million inhabitants," said the official, who was speaking on the penultimate day of the VIII Congress and Exhibition of African Oil Producing Countries.
On the penultimate day of the event, participants examined the financial investment reserved for the sector in Africa. This Thursday marks the last day of the congress, which has been taking place in Luanda since Monday.
