According to the Copperbelt Province Minister, Mwenya Musenge, the government recognizes that the country’s financial sector as a major player in the Zambia economy and is, therefore, committed to providing citizens with affordable and accessible banking services.

During the ceremony, Saviour Chibiya, Barclays Bank Zambia Plc Managing Director, indicated that the bank was pleased to offer enhanced customer service through the launching of the country’s first Kwacha credit card, which can be used in over 150 countries where Visa is accepted.
