Erdogan’s visit to the DRC follows President Tshisekedi’s to Turkey in September 2021, where the two Heads of State held bilateral talks in Ankara. In October the same year, a large delegation of Turkish entrepreneurs came to Kinshasa and met with Prime Minister Sama Lukonde. They had shown interest in investing in various sectors including agriculture, infrastructure, energy and trade.

Later that year, Presidents Tshisekedi and Erdogan met again on the sidelines of the Turkey-Africa summit in December.

At the time, the two countries had concluded three cooperation agreements focusing on the promotion and mutual protection of investments between the governments, prevention of double taxation on income and the prevention of tax evasion between the governments, and on tourism.
