We develop and maintain relations between the United Kingdom and both Democratic Republic of Congo and Republic of Congo.

Our primary mission is to consolidate peace and reduce poverty in DR Congo. As well as managing the political relationship, we provide consular assistance to British nationals in both countries and support trade and investment. The UK, through the Department for International Development, is a major donor to DR Congo.
