Government happy with investment levels in the country

The Ministry of Commerce, Trade and Industry is happy with the level of investments coming in the country especially in the manufacturing sector.

Speaking after a tour of Handy Mans Paradise lime plant and Nealcanth Cables in Ndola, Commerce Permanent secretary Siazongo Sikalenge expressed satisfaction at the investment that the country has seen especially in the manufacturing sector.

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.

Govt advises the private sector to utilise investment opportunities

The Ministry of Commerce has advised the private sector to take advantage of  the many investment opportunities in the Country.
 Ministry of Commerce, Permanent Secretary (PS) Siazongo Siakalenge  says there are many investment opportunities for both local and international investors to explore.

Mr. Siakalenge said his Ministry has formulated and implemented policies that were promoting investment climate in the country as could be seen from the growing manufacturing sector.

The PS said this when he toured ZAMBEEF Plc plant in Chisamba.
