Mining royalties in the DRC
In the past mining royalties were only paid to the state who were supposed to retrocede a share to the provinces and the decentralised territorial entities. However, these retrocessions have been very partial. Since the introduction of the new mining code in 2018 mining royalties are divided between three levels of government: national (50%), provincial (25%) and 15% for ETD's (i.e. towns, communes, sectors and chiefdoms).
Thanks to these newly acquired taxes, a new university was built in Bunkeya in three years.
