French investors eye ZambiaBy KASUBA MULENGA
PRESIDENT Banda has announced that French investors will start arriving in the country as early as next week to explore avenues of investment in various sectors of the economy.
This follows successful meetings he held with them on the sidelines of the just ended France-Africa summit held in Nice.
He said the summit was of great benefit to Zambia and Africa as a whole as it tackled critical areas of development, climate change, peace and security in Africa, including other development issues between Africa and France.
The President was answering questions from journalists at Lusaka International Airport yesterday shortly after arriving from France at about 18:00 hours.
“The summit was very useful. In addition to that, I spent one-and-half days talking to various investors and other people who want to come to Zambia to invest in various fields. I look forward to greater achievements in that sense,” he said.
