To strengthen the Congolese franc and lessen dependency on the US dollar, the Central Bank of the Congo BCC has ordered that all Electronic Payment Terminals EPTs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo DRC only take Congolese francs.

However, experts like economist AL Kitenge say longterm success in depolarizing the economy still depends on stability. Read More..
