DIPLOMATS TO INDIA EMPIRE

Select The Country:

ZAMBIA

 

JANUARY 2018

 

Zambia is a country in Southern Africa, harboring the Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders you see at least once in a lifetime. At least four hundred and sixteen (416) Indians visited Zambia for tourism purposes from January to December in the year 2017. The highest number of tourists from India was in the month of May where seventy eight (78) tourists visited the country. At a time when it will be very hot here in India, it will be the best time to watch the Victoria Falls in Zambia because it will be cooler and you will feel the sprays from the Victoria Falls. Zambians have maintained peace since independence in 1964 and this is prerequisite for tourist inflows. The country has the infrastructure such as reliable aviation services and five star hotels. In the year 2018, help us to beat the 2017 numbers by visiting Zambia.

This is an urban renewal and retrofitting program by the Government of India with a mission to develop 109 cities all over the country making them citizen-friendly and sustainable. The Government has a vision of developing 100 smart cities as satellite towns of larger cities by modernizing the existing mid-sized cities. Zambia is planning to make Kafue District as an industrial hub but will come with quality planning to make the current town a citizen-friendly and sustainable future city. In September 2015, President Edgar Lungu promoted "smart cities" in his address to Parliament.

Tourism activities that can be enjoyed in the Kingdom of Lesotho include nature and game reserves in the mountain and foothill areas of the country. These have accommodation on site or nearby where visitors can lodge. There are breathtaking mountain scenery and rivers. These also provide the much needed fresh air that one expects when they escape the busy city life. These mountains provide a platform for mountain climbing activities and also play host to the Roof of Africa rally that is an annual event that draws participants from all over the world.

Zambia has five priority sectors and these include tourism, manufacturing, energy, agriculture and infrastructure. There are ten cardinal reasons why Zambia is an attractive investment destination. It has a stable political system since independence in 1964. The country has a positive and investor friendly economic environment and has established multi-facility economic zones and industrial parks, including large rural areas ideal for agriculture.

India has embarked on an ambitious development agenda to transform the country and this bold decision is highly recommendable. Initiatives such as Smart Cities, Make in India, Digital India, Clean Ganga, Clean India and Skill India are steps in the right direction to realise this goal. Zambia will keenly follow the progress of this agenda.

Zambia wants to build on the long standing relationship with India in many sectors. The recent visit of the Indian business community during the African Development Bank Annual Meeting in May 2016 is a true testimony of this unique relationship. If anything, Zambia looks forward to many such visits that will ultimately result in increased trade between the two countries and while it learns from India, it expects India to learn from it too.
