• There are a lot of opportunities that investors coming to Zambia could explore.
• Stable political environment is a recipe for flourishing businesses.
• Businesses must consider investing in Zambia because of the country’s pro- business policy.
Zambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ZACCI) says Zambia is a notable destination of choice for Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) due to its conducive business environment, predictable economic policy, and its central location with readily available market for products and services.
Speaking on the sidelines of the on-going 3rd Pakistan Africa Trade Development Trade Expo at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, ZACCI President Dr. Chabuka Kawesha was happy that Zambia was given an opportunity to market itself at the Conference.
Dr. Kawesha said there are a lot of opportunities that investors coming to Zambia could explore in various sectors of the economy such as agro-processing, agriculture and value addition, mining, manufacturing, and tourism.
He called on businesses to consider investing in Zambia because of the country’s pro- business policy and regulatory reforms being implemented by Government in consultation with the private sector.
“Trade and investment play a key role in the promotion of economic development and meaningful participation in the economy. The Public Private Dialogue Forum (PPDF) was developed with a goal of promoting economic growth and development through public private partnership opportunities in Zambia,” Dr. Kawesha stated.
He further stated that the aim of PPDF is welcome and will help in market expansion objectives by the private sector thereby triggering economic development and job creation opportunities.
Dr. Kawesha also noted that the stable political environment is a recipe for flourishing businesses whose good return on investment and security are guaranteed.
