Abstract: Developing countries are often characterized by a high volatility of inflation, exchange rate and output in contrast to advanced economies. In this paper, we develop a small open-economy dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (SOE DSGE). We modify the model of Galí and Monacelli (2005) in order to take into account interactions between natural resource sector and business cycle. Then we calibrate the model using Congolese (DRC) data, in order to provide a reasonable description of its main features, particularly relative volatility of inflation and exchange rates. Finally, we use this framework to: (i) characterize the transmission mechanism of monetary policy; (ii) assess the macroeconomic implications of volatility on welfare when monetary policy follows a standard rule based on the targeting of domestic inflation. The purpose objective of this paper is to design a compact and transparent analytical tool to simulate the real effects of the monetary policy in the DRC.
