University seeks partnership with Malaysian investors

Economy University seeks partnership with Malaysian investors

Proprietors of Victoria Falls University of Technology have implored the Malaysian businessmen to partner with the institution in providing quality education to Zambia.

Proprietor of the University Akapelwa Ehueni said the shareholders of the university
were interested in private investment and hoped the Malaysians would come on board
and help in the completion of the campus.

Ms Ehueni said the completion of phase one of the university which is located at the
old Livingstone Trades School required an estimated K11.7 billion.

She was speaking last night at a Business Dinner at Zambezi Sun hosted in honour of
the visiting Malaysian businessmen.

Ms Ehueni said the move to put up a univesrity in Livingstone was in line with the
Government policy which called for increased university education in the
country.

She said the proprietors were also responding to calls to establish a university in
Livingstone and noted that the school programmes would meet the labour
market demands.

”Iam inviting Malaysian businessmen to partner with us and succeed in this
programme,” she said.

Ms Ehueni said the proprietors included seven Zambian shareholders who were looking
for partners to partner with and be able to produce high calibre intellectuals in
technology.

Ms Ehueni said the university would also offer degree programmes in tourism since
there was no university in the country which was offering such services and people
in the hospitality industry ended at diploma
level.

She said renovations to the university had already started and the institution was
expected to be expanded up to Kazungula.

She further said once operational, the university would cater for Botswana, Namibia,
Zambia and Zimbabwe.
