“The engine for growth remains increased mineral production, and in some cases, higher productivity in the agricultural sector, ” the UN mission said in a report released on Tuesday.
“One of the major challenges facing the economy is the decreased foreign direct investments due to political instability, and the drop in the price of copper and cobalt, both of which form 44 percent of the country’s nominal gross domestic product.
