Zambia: Zambia plans to boost DRC exports to $2bn-Mutati lusakatimes.com
Zambia plans to boost its exports to the Democratic Republic of Congo to more than $2 billion this year from $1.2 billion in 2009, taking advantage of the flexible trade terms, Trade Minister Felix Mutati said on Thursday.

Mutati said exports to the DRC, Zambia’s largest trading partner in the African trading bloc COMESA, had continued to increase because there were no restrictions on goods it could export to its neighbour.

“The advantage of the DR Congo is that the range of exports is from agricultural products through to processed items, machinery and literally anything we can produce in Zambia,” Mutati said at a media briefing.

“All those complicated things which make it difficult to trade, particularly with Europe, do not apply with our neighbours and you could literally take live chickens across borders and they will buy,” Mutati said.

Mutati said Zambia had started building a one-stop border at Kasumbalesa on the border with DRC to facilitate trade and speed up clearance procedures.
“All those complicated things which make it difficult to trade, particularly with Europe, do not apply with our neighbours and you could literally take live chickens across borders and they will buy,” Mutati said.

“We expect the buildings and related infrastructure to be completed by the end of this year because our colleagues in the DRC have already completed their structures,” he said.

A report by the Infrastructure Consortium for Africa in November showed service costs were high in sub-Saharan Africa due to poor roads, water and power networks and the region needed to double its infrastructure spending to $93 billion a year to effect improvements.

A South African company plans to build a $251-million sugar and bio-ethanol plant in Zambia, one of the largest non-mining investments in recent years in Africa's biggest copper producer, an official said on Saturday.

Muhabi Lungu, a director at the Zambia Development Agency (ZDA), said AGZAM of South Africa would start developing the project next month after signing an agreement with Zambia last week.

"The company will produce 200 000 t of sugar and 28-million litres of bio-ethanol per year," Lungu said. "Production is expected to start by 2013 and we expect that the project will create around 4 000 jobs."

Lungu said the South African firm would cultivate about 15 000 hectares of cane sugar and support about 3 000 hectares of plantations by out-growers.

Once completed, it will increase Zambian sugar production by 50%.

LUSAKA (Reuters) - Nigeria's largest cement maker Dangote Cement will invest $400 million to build a cement plant in Zambia over the next three years, its chief executive said on Friday.

Aliko Dangote said the cement plant, to be constructed from next year to 2013, was among the largest investments that the company was making outside mining.

"We will be producing 1.5 million tonnes of cement per year at the plant in Zambia when the company reaches the full production capacity by 2013," Dangote said.

Dangote plans to set up other plants and import terminals in countries including Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Senegal, aimed at producing a total of 46 million tonnes of cement in five years' time on the continent, 30 million of it in Nigeria. .

Zambia's Economic Growth Impresses UN
06/05/11 - Fri

The United Nations (UN) has described Zambia's economic performance as impressive and that it should be sustained to attain the prosperous middle-income country status. United Nations Under-Secretary Rebecca Grynspan said in Lusaka that the growth posted in the economy so far was a shining example that would help in reducing poverty in the country.
She said this at a meeting with Finance and National Planning Deputy Minister David Phiri. She said the UN had observed with keen interest how Zambia was transforming its economy and trying to make the lives of the citizens better through various initiatives.

"I must say that the UN is very impressed with the performance of Zambia's economy. The country has achieved so much in the past few years to make the lives of the Zambians better. If this performance is maintained, poverty would greatly be reduced," he said.

She said the 7.6 per cent economic growth recorded in 2010 was an impressive rate which was not just better than all Southern Africa countries but Sub-Saharan Africa as well. She also praised Zambia's low inflation rate, which last month stood at 8.8 per cent saying a single digit inflation rate and a and growing economy were impressive macroeconomic indicators to the development of any nation.

Zambia's inflation rate last year ended at 7.9 per cent, which was the second straight year as a single digit, with 2008 being the only year with double digit because of the Global economic crisis.

The UN official said the Sixth National Development Plan (SNDP) which looked at reducing poverty and improving infrastructure if well implemented could bring poverty levels in the country low.

And Mr Phiri said the Government was determined to post even better economic growths in the years to come. He said Zambia's economic growth had been rising steadily from 5.3 in 2008 to since 6.3 the following year and the 7.6 per cent recorded last year.

"Zambia is one of the very few countries in the region that are able to feed itself and even export food. Maize harvest in 2008/09 season was 1.8 million tonnes and then the last farming season registered 2.8 million tonnes.This has helped to keep food prices and inflation low," he said.

He added that all other sectors were performing well with copper production rising to 800 000 last year, when it was at 200 000 in the 1970's while Zambia's exchange rate had remained stable with the construction sector on the rise.

He praised the UN for helping collaborating in the various developmental projects.Times of Zambia/05/05/2011

RB breaks ground for the construction of HITACHI plant to be completed in December



President Rupiah Banda says construction of the Hitachi manufacturing plant is an indication that Zambia is ripe for investment from all around the world.
Hitachi will invest an initial 15 million United States dollars, which is over 7.1 billion Kwacha in the first phase of the project expected to be completed in December this year.
Mr Banda was speaking at the Ground breaking ceremony of Hitachi construction machinery Zambia limited factory on airport road.
The plant will be assembling earth moving equipment and is expected to employ over 200 people in the construction phase.
President Banda says the establish of Hitachi is important for Zambia because of the jobs and technology transfer it will bring into the country.
Mr Banda notes that once the plant is up and running it will establish Zambia as a major source of earth moving equipment for the region.
He has thanked Hitachi for the investment which he believes will attract more Japanese investors to Zambia.
The President says Zambia has huge investment opportunities in the mining, manufacturing and tourism sectors.
Hitachi is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of construction, mining and earthmoving equipment.
This is the first ever investment into the manufacturing sector by a Japanese company.
The investment is expected to add impetus to President Banda’s desire to create more jobs for Zambians.
And Japan says Hitachi’s investment in Zambia is a clear indication that the country is an attractive investment destination, and that Zambia has great potential to be an economic hub of the region.
Japanese Ambassador to Zambia, Akio Egawa says the investment will also be a valuable booster to the economy.
He said this in Lusaka on Thursday during the ground breaking ceremony of the construction of Hitachi Construction Machinery re-manufacturing factory along Lusaka’s airport road.
And Commerce Minister Felix Mutati says Hitachi investment will attract other global investors into the Country.
And Vice President of Hitachi Construction Machinery Yokio Arima says the company believes in Zambia and her economy.
Mr Arima told ZNBC News that the company targets to rehabilitate earth moving equipment for the mining companies in Zambia and the region.
He says the company will initially employ about 20 Zambians to work at the plant when its operation by end of this year.

Zambia to exceed GDP target

STANDARD Chartered Bank managing director Mizinga Melu has said the country is poised to exceed the projected seven percent gross domestic product (GDP) growth by the end of the year following the economic boom recorded in agriculture, mining and infrastructure.
Mrs Melu said the country’s economic growth in the three sectors is a positive indicator in the financial markets.
She said the recent bumper harvest recorded in the agricultural sector is another good sign that Government policies are working.
She said this during the opening of a one-day training for corporate clients and regulators at Taj Pamodzi Hotel in Lusaka yesterday.
“Zambia’s economic performance is positive and as a bank, we are predicting that at the end of the year, the country will exceed seven percent GDP because the major sectors are doing fine” she said.
She said the positive growth had seen a new class of middle income earners emerging and the bank was positioning itself to offer the best solutions to its clients.
Mrs Melu said the local currency is stable and the role of the bank is to protect the interests of its customers against any risks in the financial market.
“This positive outlook presents a significant opportunity for financial intermediaries like banks if they position themselves well in the market,” she said.
Mrs Melu warned that the global market is becoming unpredictable and sophisticated and the bank has to strive to lead the market in providing innovative solutions and services to its customers.

Engineering company to use Zimec to relaunch Zambian business
Quote:
The South African arm of US engineering giant Martin Engineering, Martin Engineering South Africa, is planning to use the upcoming inaugural Zambian International Mining and Energy Conference (Zimec) to relaunch its Zambian business.

Zimec is the first of its kind in the former Southern African powerhouse, which had an economy heavily dependent on the copper riches that the country hosts. The conference will showcase the mining potential in the country as well as the potential for energy-related projects.

IMF sees Zambia 2012 GDP growth at 7.4 pct: finmin
Tue Jun 7, 2011
LUSAKA (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is projecting economic growth of 7.4 percent for Zambia in 2012 from 6.8 percent this year, Finance minister Situmbeko Musokotwane said on Tuesday.

Musokotwane told a news conference the projection was obtained from an IMF document sent to his ministry last week.

"Part of this growth we are seeing is because African countries, including Zambia, are becoming big players in terms of exports," he said.

The IMF had also forecast that Africa's top copper producer would see its exports reach $10 billion in 2011 before rising to $11.5 billion in 2012, he said.

Musokotwane said Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into Zambia was expected to rise to $1.7 billion in 2012 from $1.5 billion this year, largely driven by investment in mining and infrastructure.

over view of what zccz aplogies this is a 2009 article
Copperbelt zone = Mining , smelters , Manufacturing same with Chambishi Zambia-China Economic and Trade Co-operation Zone.
Zambia China Economic & Trade Cooperation Zone, unveiled by President Hu Jintao, is the first economic zone China has invested in Africa. Currently, the accumulated investment on infrastructure has reached US$ 80 million, and there have been more than 10 enterprises operating in the zone which invested more than US$ 700 million in the zone providing more than 3000 employment. ZCCZ is taking shape and becoming a platform for investors and will no doubt promote the economic growth of Zambia.

Lusaka zone = Manufacturing , light industry
lusaka industrial development zone aka zccz ...the real star is the copperbelt zone one lusaka just started and will be competing with the roma park development zone
construction update nothing exciting to see as most of the stuff done is services and roads bt they've started on some structures + the hitachi stuff and some chinese companies hav been laying foundations
