Accor announced the signing of an agreement to develop 10 new hotels at the Africa Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF), which took place in Ethiopia during the week of 23-25 September.
The hotels include Kolo Hotel, the first franchise hotel of the Kola Hotel Group in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which is strategically located in Kolwezi, the capital of Kinshasa. The hotel is strategically located near the city centre and at the intersection of the main road with the road to Bangui, a popular tourist destination.

Kolo Hotel, the first franchise hotel of the Kola Hotel Group in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is located in Kolwezi, a major tourist centre in and around the capital Kinshasa, which is the second largest city in Congo and one of only three major cities in Africa, and is strategically located near the main road to Bangui.
More than 3,942 rooms are planned for the region, including more than 1,500 in countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Central African Republic (CAR) and South Sudan. With the opening of Kolo Hotel Kolwezi, the first franchise hotel of the Kola Hotel Group in the Congo, IHG is expanding its presence in Africa. More than 2,000 hotel rooms and over 3 million square meters of retail space are planned in this region, with over 1.5 million rooms and 3.2 million square meters of office space, while the country includes the capital Kinshasa, Bangui, Mombasa, Kivu and other major cities in and around the city.
For decades, Congo has been plagued by a picture of war and poverty: despite its wealth in natural resources, corruption, mismanagement, and conflict have impoverished the Franco-French country, and growth in a once-prosperous country has stalled. The Democratic Republic of Congo has an estimated $24 trillion in untapped mineral reserves and some of the world's largest gold reserves, diamonds, platinum, copper, gold and platinum. Indeed, it ranks second only to South Sudan and ahead of South Africa as Africa's second largest exporter of minerals.
It currently serves an ever-growing foreign and international community that works and does business in the region. This trio of hotels are expected to quickly make their mark as one of the most popular social destinations in their respective cities. We expect them to make their mark on the international tourism industry in Congo and Africa as a whole. They are expected to quickly make their mark on the global travel industry as a major destination for tourists and locals.
Kolwezi and its mineral centre in the Democratic Republic of Congo are forecast to grow significantly over the next three decades. This project will also contribute to the promotion of a sustainable supply chain and the development of a more sustainable economy. With this initiative, we want to complement our strategy of sustainable raw materials to achieve impact through close cooperation with strong partners on the ground, "says Dr. Kostas Kogalipas, Director of the Centre for Sustainable Resource Development at the University of Kinshasa.
He participated in a panel of experts focused on returning to profitability and developing a sustainable supply chain for the Kolwezi Mineral Centre and the mining industry.
