Thibaut Hollanders, Corporate & M&A partner and General Manager of Liedekerke DRC was interviewed by Belgian innovative legal tech company Afriwise, to contribute to its free end-of-year online resource center.
To close 2020, Afriwise created indeed a special end-of-year free resource hub with plenty of useful resources such as recorded conversations with top in-country practitioners in 11 countries (currently available on the Afriwise platform) which aims at briefing the audience on key legal changes in 2020 and the necessary legal knowledge to successfully navigate 2021.
Thibaut Hollanders was interviewed for this occasion and he provides in an in-depth interview detailed insights on why the DRC is a place where you must be on the ground, the rise in the DRC energy sector, how the DRC’s adhesion to the OHADA-treaty has facilitated doing business in the country, the newly adopted local content framework, why it is still very beneficial to do business in the DRC, why cash remains king in the DRC, Kinshasa traffic jams, the unexpected benefits of the special economic zones, economic sectors and anticipated regulatory changes to watch out for in 2021, as well as the digitalisation of the DRC’s economy, and so much more.
