GOVERNMENT will continue improving policy measures aimed at fostering growth and strengthening corporate governance, Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda has said.
Mr Chikwanda said maintaining a conducive environment that supported private sector led-growth, favourable to local and foreign investment was a priority to the Government.
The minister said this in Solwezi yesterday when he opened Indo-Zambia Bank’s 18th branch in the country.
Mr Chikwanda hailed Indo-Zambia Bank (IZB) for its continued strong partnership with Government in fostering economic growth.
“As you may be aware, there are a number of developmental projects coming on stream, particularly in the mining sector here in Solwezi.
“As such, the opening of a branch by Indo-Zambia demonstrated its commitment in partnering with Government in fostering growth in Solwezi and supporting the growth of the private sector,” Mr Chikwanda said.
