13-15 November 2017 - The PIA in Zambia

The PIA had a successful visit to Zambia “a country on the rebound” from 13-15 November 2017.

During the visit the Group held a number of constructive meetings with key Ministries including Commerce, Finance, Agriculture, National Development and Planning, Energy, Health and Works and Supply. A number of meetings were also held with international institutions including the World Bank, IMF and the EU delegation to Zambia.

Debt levels and lack of diversification remain important challenges however the possibility of becoming a regional hub, positive shifts in agriculture, increased investments in infrastructure and a growing population bode well for private investment.
