In May 2019, Rawbank supported Viva RDC, a new multisector platform of the Presidency of the Democratic Republic of the Congo bringing together digital players in the country. Actors on this platform will represent the different Congolese fairs, Afrobytes, Viva Technology and Congo na Paris, to highlight and promote the Congolese ecosystem, represented by Kinshasa Digital and Ingenious City, among others.
Rawbank’s support is justified by the need to partner with the State in its national development objectives, added to the Bank’s deep conviction that the digital transformation can be a powerful development tool for the country, offering many possibilities and consequently just as many solutions in economic, demographic, mining and educational planning and forecasting.
For the General Director of Rawbank, digital technology will be a source of accelerated growth for the Democratic Republic of Congo and Africa. Thierry Taeymans believes that the digital technology will play a crucial role in financial inclusion and the successful insertion of the Congolese economy into a globalizing world. A statement that justifies in itself the support that the Congolese delegation receives from Rawbank, positioned not as an occasional sponsor, but a full partner in the effort to develop the digital ecosystem of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Rawbank was enthusiastic and proud of this partnership, which embodies the dynamism and immense potential of the Congolese market in the digital field. Thus the Bank accompanies this platform, which at the initiative of the Presidency of the Republic, will go beyond the national and continental borders.
The events in Paris took place according to the following schedule: Afrobytes on 15 May Viva Technology from 16 to 18 May, and finally Congo na Paris on 19 May 2019.
What is most important to us is to succeed with you.
