WASTED EFORT AND MONEY: NO INVESTOR HAS COME ON BOARD SO FAR TO INVEST TWO MONTHS AFTER THE COPPERBELT INVESTMENT EXPO

Copperbelt Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe has disclosed that no investor has come on board so far to invest in the province two months after it held its investment expo.

Mr. Nundwe has since directed officers at the provincial administration to find mechanisms of following up on potential investors that participated in the expo.

Speaking in Ndola Tuesday when he met officials from the provincial administration, Mr Nundwe explained that huge sums of money were spent to host the expo that took place from 24 to 28th June 2019, hence the need for the province to yield positive results from the event.

The Copperbelt Investments Expo was held in Ndola under the theme `Broaden the Copperbelt Economy through diversified investment.`
