Zambia Vice President, Guy Scott, who spoke recently at the Corporate Council on Africa (CCA), announced that the top priority of the Zambia government is to find tangible opportunities to improve employment in the country with new investment in the agriculture, tourism and manufacturing sectors.
According to Vice-President Scott, Zambia is committed to maintaining its liberal policies that are based on foreign direct investment (FDI).
Zambia Minister of Commerce Trade and Industry, Robert Sichinga, echoed the Vice President’s commitments, assuring the CCA that Zambia offers a conducive environment for investment with the Zambia Development Agency (ZDA) serving as a liaison between the investor and the State and facilitating the management and monitoring of FDI in the country.
The CCA is a non-profit, membership-based organization with the aim to promote business and investment between the United States and African nations.
According to the CCA Vice-President, Stephen Hayes, the organization is planning a trade mission to Zambia and Zimbabwe later this year.
