Select The Country:



JULY 2019


"Chalo Zambia. Chalo is a Hindi word literally translated as 'Let's Go' hence Let's Go Zambia. With 54 countries in the African continent, it makes sense for an investor to select a host country for investment especially that which is targeting regions and the whole continent. Having changed Presidents six times democratically without any upheaval, Zambia boasts of being a haven of peace harboring refugees from many parts of the world. One of the reasons why India's investment in Africa and Zambia in particular witnessed a slump in the past is that some traditional investors looked at the continent with less degree of seriousness. The other challenge was lack of high level exchange visits that left a bad taste among African leaders many of whom held India in high esteem especially that some were trained in India. Special thanks to Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi ji who has added impetus to the Indo-Zambia relations in particular and Africa in general. During the last five years, more than 26 outbound visits by the Indian President, Prime Minister and Ministers have been held with the first ever visit to Zambia in 2018 by an Indian President in 30 years. Remember that the continent signed an African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) which will provide great opportunities for Indian investors to tap into a larger, unified, simplified and more robust African market. It is critical for India to view Africa and Zambia in particular not just as a destination for short-term returns but as a partner for medium and long-term economic growth. The AfCFTA agreement represents a historic development in Africa's journey towards a single, common and integrated market for the continent. The free trade area aims to deepen the African integration process and will allow free movement of people and trade across and continent. The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) forecasts that simplification of border controls and the reduction in duties to the AfCFTA will boost intra-regional trade by 52 percent in five years. Once you invest in Zambia, it will be easy to transport your goods across the continent. The other benefit is that you can trade back with India through the Duty Free Tariff Preference (DFTP) scheme for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) which India offers. With this background, we once again say Chalo Zambia!"

I wish to congratulate the Honourable Prime Minister of the Republic of India Mr. Narendra Modi Ji, on behalf of the staff at the Zambia High Commission in New Delhi, India, and indeed on my own behalf, for a successful victory in the May 2019 democratic election and subsequent swearing in at a memorable ceremony. I wish to assure the Honourable Prime Minister of our unflinching support towards realizing President Edgar Chagwa Lungu's vision of developing Zambia through economic diplomacy. We look forward to working with Right Honourable Modi Ji and his Cabinet, to complete all bilateral issues especially the decongestion of Lusaka Roads Project inaugurated by His Excellency, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, President of India. Once again, heartfelt congratulations and best of wishes and God's favour as he takes up this honorous task. Assurance of our highest consideration

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.

-Mr Sikapale Chinzewe, Charge d'Affaires, Zambia High Commission



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.
