On March 2, 2017, "Howard University, in the capital of the US, organized a day of reflection on the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In order to stimulate thought, the American university has brought in the man who is raising the hope of a Congo more beautiful and stronger than before: Dr. Noël K. Tshiani, candidate for the next presidential election in the Democratic Republic of Congo, author of Noël K. Tshiani's Marshall Plan for the Reconstruction of the DRC and currently Senior International Officer at the World Bank in Washington, DC.

Dr. Noël K.

"Noël K. Tshiani's Marshall Plan for the Reconstruction of the DRC draws people from beyond the DRC. This time, at the invitation of the African Union Ambassador to the United States, the Howard University conference had active participation from the embassies of African countries such as South Africa, Angola , Tanzania, Kenya, Morocco, Cameroon, Senegal, Congo Brazzaville, and of course the Democratic Republic of Congo. The presence of US congressional support staff was also noticed..."
