With a pipeline of public private partnership projects worth USD 22 billion, the government is wooing international investors in several sectors, The Investor’s Road Map Zambia (2018).
- The Government of Zambia (GoZ) strongly supports major investments in infrastructure aiming to unleash the potential in agriculture, tourism, manufacturing and address housing needs.
- Foreign-owned companies perform, most of the time, large-scale government projects.
Public private partnerships
- To accelerate the development of infrastructures, the GoZ recognized the need to mobilize private sector financing.
To increase private sector participation, the government plans to facilitate Public–Private Partnerships (PPP).
- Potential exists in the following areas:
|Investments in roads, rail and telecommunication infrastructure||PPP opportunities||Construction of affordable housing (more than 2 million housings are missing)||Construction of commercial property in regional centres|
