The new Kinshasa financial center, a product of Turkish-Congolese cooperation, was inaugurated by Congolese President Félix Tshisekedi ahead of the presidential elections, with construction commencing in November 2022. The project, totaling $290 million, features four 21-storey towers, a convention center, and 90,000 m² of land, aiming to streamline operations for the Ministry of Budget and the Ministry of Finance in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The center will also house a number of financial institutions, including a development bank in the making. It will also house the Central Coordination Office, an investment fund and a luxury hotel. The project offers nearly 10,000 offices. In terms of employment, the construction work will have mobilized 3,500 jobs, more than half of which will be filled by local workers. Turkish company Milvest has also entered into another partnership with the Congolese government. This involves the construction of the Ndjili international airport, for an investment of 1.2 billion US dollars.
