Governement Implements Reservation Schemes for Citizens

Zambia experienced consistent Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth of about 6% for over a decade. Despite this strong economic growth, the Zambian economy is still characterised by relatively low participation of Zambian citizens in the ownership of strategic industries, as well as in value addition. Economic growth is sustainable when it is anchored on citizen participation.

Recognising the challenge in citizen participation levels, Government has had to put in place deliberate measures to avail and secure citizens participation in the domestic economy, particularly through entrepreneurship and value chains.
