President Hakainde Hichilema has announced that Zambia is ready for business, which is why the government is establishing strong institutions to create an enabling climate for investment.
The president stated that the government is committed to implementing reforms to promote economic growth and that it is aware of what needs to be done to improve the country’s economy.
President Hichilema was at the Zambia Investment Forum in London where he made this known.
According to reports from ZANIS, the president revealed that the government will continue to do more as it tried to overturn the country’s economic fortunes.
The president further revealed that his government is keen on working with the private sector to improve the lives of Zambians.
At the function, Minister of Finance, Situmbeko Musokotwane urged the business community in London to assist the government in pushing for debt relief.
He said that the government had played its role, hence the call to push for debt relief from creditors.
Musokotwane revealed that the government has met all the requirements requested by the creditors and wondered why there was a delay in offering the debt relief.
He revealed that the government was interested in seeing more and more investments that will create much-needed jobs and cutdown poverty in the country.
Karen Taylor, the Invest Africa Chief Executive Officer stated that the organization was pleased with the strides taken by the government to ensure that it becomes a hotspot for investors.
She was full of praise for Hichilema’s administration over the institutional reforms it has made to create a strong environment for foreign direct investors.
Taylor said Invest Africa will prioritise the marketing of Zambia with a view to wooing more investment in the country.
