Each year During the New York General Assembly Opening at the United Nations, Forbes Hosts their Forbes Best of Africa Awards 2022.

The Forbes Best of Africa Awards 2022 celebrates the work of leading lights whose individual efforts contribute to the growth of the African continent.

At a recent reception held at the Museum of Art and Design at Columbus Circle sponsored by Invest Africa in partnership with Standard Chartered Bank and Divo International, four individuals from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) were honored for their work.  

The DRC was identified by Forbes as deserving of special mention for the progress they have been making to improve its business climate and thereby attract investors.

Inspector Jules Alingeti for his relentless efforts against those who would exploit public finances and lead the fight against corruption.
