A renowned entrepreneur in South Africa, Zambia and the DRC, but also a deputy and provincial minister, the new director general of the Private Sector Regulatory Authority intends to favor national subcontractors, unlike foreign companies, particularly Chinese ones, who prefer to subcontract with companies from their country.
” We cannot develop the middle class without involving the Congolese in the value chain of their raw materials. You know today that the Congo is the world’s leading producer of cobalt, but we feel that Congolese subcontracting is not developing. “said Miguel Katemb Kashal.
Himself a product of the private sector, Miguel Katemb Kashal believes that the Congolese have all the necessary skills to offer a quality service. ” We will follow up and ensure that the Congolese have real social shares in the subcontracting. This is how we are going to create the real middle class which is the vision and the will of the Head of State for this country “, he added.
The authorities hope that Miguel Katemb Kashal, through his experience, will also be able to clean up the subcontracting environment in the Democratic Republic of Congo, so that local companies no longer call on foreign subcontractors.
