Come invest in Zambia, Sikataneta tells Indians

Zambia has invited Indian investments in sectors such as energy, agro-processing, manufacturing, construction and tourism. The exotic South African country has also called for investment proposals from India at its various national parks.

“There are a lot of investment opportunities in agriculture, manufacturing, energy, construction of bridges and roads and agro-processing industries,” Susan Sikaneta, High Commissioner of of Zambia, told reporters here on Thursday in India.

She was addressing an interactive session organised by the city based Indian Chamber of Commerce.

According to Sikaneta, the country has also been focusing on infrastructure development for tourism. She emphasised on developing places like South Luangwa National park, Kafue National Park, and Liuwa Plain National Park as tourist attractions.

The Zambian Government is also working on creating key policies to support infrastructure development at Kasaba Bay. The country has identified 20 investment sites in the Province, located in Northern Zambia.

The bilateral trade between Zambia and India stood at $190 million in 2011. “We would like to see the number go up by three times over the next few years,” Sikaneta said.
