The Economics Association of Zambia (EAZ) says for a country to be competitive, it needs to protect its economic interests and have policies that ensure that businesses strive.
EAZ President Dr. Lubinda Habazoka says economic dialogue is important and that Zambia needs to promote homegrown solutions to the challenges it faces.
He was speaking at the EAZ website launch and Media Breakfast ahead of the National Economic Forum slated for 25th and 26th July 2019 in Livingstone.
The Conference is aimed at coming up with recommendations on how Zambia and Africa can develop on its own.
Speaking at the same event, Texilla American University Head of Business and Information Technology Dr. Agape Kapasa says Zambia is used to looking for solutions in the western world whenever there are economic challenges.
Dr. Kapasa also notes that there is a huge gap between academics and business in Zambia which should not be the case.
He says there is need to come together and find solutions which will relate academics and business.
