Part of security and dignitories welcome United States Secretary of State Hilary Clinton when she arrived in Zambia at Lusaka international airport.
Part of security and dignitories welcome United States Secretary of State Hilary Clinton when she arrived in Zambia at Lusaka international airport.

Visiting United States (US) Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has left Zambia after winding up her schedule in the country where she also addressed the 10th Africa Growth Opportunity Act (AGOA) Forum which officially closed yesterday.

The plane carrying Mrs. Clinton took off at the Lusaka International Airport at 14-30 hours local time. She has gone to Tanzania on other official duties.

ZANIS reports that the former first Lady was seen off at the airport by Foreign Affairs Minister Kabinga Pande, Tourism and Natural Resources Minister Catherine Namugala, US Ambassador to Zambia Mark Storella and senior government officials from the two governments.

Later in the evening, Mrs. Clinton who arrived yesterday (Friday), in the country private talks with President Rupiah Banda at State House where a dinner was also hosted in her honour.

Today, the US Secretary of State graced the official launch of the Zambia-American Chamber of Commerce at Intercontinental Hotel.

Mrs Clinton also handed over a state of art Pediatric Centre of Excellence at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) to President Banda who received the facility on behalf of the Zambian Government.

Shortly after the handover ceremony, she held private talks with two major opposition political party leaders; Michael Sata and Hakainde Hichilema of the Patriotic Front (PF) and United Party for National Development (UPND) respectively on this year’s elections.

While in Zambia, the United States (US) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has bemoaned the low level of economic cooperation, integration and trade among African countries saying this was an obstacle to sustainable growth on the continent.

Mrs Clinton noted that the benefits of economic integration were well known which included reducing food insecurity by allowing agricultural goods to move efficiently to the places where they are needed and landlocked countries have access to ports and habours.

ZANIS reports that officially closing the 10th Africa Growth Opportunity Act (AGOA) Forum at Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka yesterday, She added that other benefits of economic integration was that African companies were allowed to tap into a very promising new market.

Addressing more than 3 000 delegates from US and 37 eligible African countries, the US Secretary of State said there was less trade within the Sub Saharan Africa than within any other region of the World and attributed this to partly improving Africa’s infrastructure stressing that the limiting factor was not roads but people.

‘’It is partly a matter of improving Africa’s infrastructure. But the most important limiting factor isn’t roads. It’s people.’’She said.

‘’It is partly a matter of improving Africa’s infrastructure. But the most important limiting factor isn’t roads. It’s people.’’She said.

Mrs Clinton who is also former First Lady cited a number of problems to economic integration noting that trade officials wanted to protect their home-grown industries with Government leaders of smaller countries concerned about larger ones gaining too much influence among others.

She further stated that while these problems were not unique to Africa, they had a powerful and lasting impact and emphasised that it was up to leaders in the Sub Saharan region to decide whether they wanted economic integration.

‘’They will have to take on entrenched interests and respond to concerns about new competition, while making clear to their constituents how they will benefit from expanded regional trade,’’She said.

Host, Commerce Trade and Industry Minister Felix Mutati was present.

In another development, the US Secretary of State hailed women for their significant contribution towards African economies and the rest of the world.

Mrs Clinton noted that evidence showed that small and medium-sized enterprises run by women were major drivers of economic growth adding that when a woman prospered she reinvested her earnings in her family and that the positive effects rippled throughout the entire community.

She further said there was need to help more women connect to the global economy adding that no country could survive when half of its people are left behind.

However, Mrs Clinton observed that cultural traditions continued to make it difficult for a woman to start a business as they discouraged her from handling money or managing employees.

The AGOA Forum was held under the theme: ‘’Enhanced Trade Through Increased Competitiveness, Value Addition and Deeper Regional Integration.’’

  1. She a patriotic political human being. This is how mature politics are.She regarded all people in the opposition and ruling equal. For once lets be mature in politics as well. Hope what is in Zedleaks is true about the election date which is 25th august 2011.

  2. #1 I concur , WHY was the young and Vibrant Elias Chipimo Jnr sidelined, why was Miyanda also sidelined, Why was  Milupi sidelined, Why was Magande also sidelined. Even our own vocal bootlicker Silupwa, why was he sidelined.

     These elections look rigged with the help of Americans from the word go. It seems to them that the presidency can only come from these tired parties that have held Zambia down for so long

    Am offended by Mrs Clinton segregation tendencies.  Anyway as voters we shall have the last laugh and somebody will walk away with egg on their face.

  3. RB should learn from the best, Clinton was only in the country for not more than 36 hours, RB would have wanted to chill in the states till immigration tells him that his diplomatic status has expired.
    She came for business and as soon as her business was done she left, no knee check ups, heart check up, taking Chelsea to see where Obama came from, shopping for the kids since they dont wear clothes from Zambia, nothing like that!

IT WAS NICE OF HILARY CLINTON TO MEET THE PRESIDENT IN WAITING SATA.SHE MET SATA KNOWING THAT USA WILL BE WORKING WITH HIM .THE AMERICANS DO NOT WANT FAKE CHINESE INVESTORS AND THEY KNOW THAT SATA IS THE RIGHT MAN TO KICK THEM OUT OF ZAMBIA. CHINESE INVESTERS YOUR TIME TO PACK UP AMD BE READY FOR YOUR DEPARTURE BACK TO BEIJING.

  5. Clinton is telling those other party presidents that they are nothing in this years Elections. 2011 polls are about Sata , RB and HH. If I was Cosmo or Siuluapwa or Miyanda , i would have joined PF. You know sata and america are anti chinese. Sata is likely to win this years elections has america is trying to gain power through Agoa in 37 african countries.

  6. I know zedlicks are always off the mark with their predictions. Remember the BOZ governor being sacked story. Elections will never be held in August. The date I have from my well placed sources is 29 of September 2011. Parliament will be dissolved any day between 20th and 30th June. Hoping by this time PF will have held their convention. Not that I care or it matters.

    • Guys those so called time wasters are the ones that will split the voters and hand over the presidency back to RB. If for once you think MMD will lose their grip on power, then you are highly delusional. if you want change pass a law through parliament that allows for two to three political parties. The current situation highly favours the MMD.

    I agree with you. The American pulled out in 2001 when their sponsored man Mazoka failed to win. They closed shop and left our major mines in the balance and government had to step in and start looking for investors from asia and it is the asians that came to the rescue. Even during their credit crunch they all cut and run , but the Chinese stayed and even revived Lyanshya mine any western wouldn’t touch.

    It is just now that the American have realized that growth is in African, that is why they are now coming in droves. They know the US economy is going nowhere. Despite printing billions of Dollars Mugabe style they have failed to create sensible jobs and now they think Africa is their only hope. Be cautious Zedians. These are capitalists criminals

The moment you chase them when serpentine comes in office which will never be the case, sanctions on Zambia shall be put and we are going to be reduced less than Zimbabweans begging for table droplets for survival.

    Anglo American is not American.It has interests all over,primarily in Afrika.Must be the name that got you thinking so.But that doesnt explain why you didnt say it was British because of the Anglo bit.Maybe when Cameron comes by for a visit.

    And it wasnt the chinese who came in when they left.it was Vendata an Indian owned company.And you might care to remember that for pulling out,Anglo gave us a parting gift of a couple million even though they were not contractually obliged to do so.Thought I would set the record straight.

    Thanks for agreeing with me. I notice in your comment you have mentioned what the Chinese have done and are doing for us and not a single thing for the Americans. Do you remember the circumstances under which the Chinese built our railway. Who caused us that trouble. When Americans dangle a carrot before you, think of the price before you extend your arm to pick it. Saddam, Mubarrack, Idi Amin and Mobutu all remind us about how Devilish the Americans can be.

  27. It was my worthwhile to fly into beloved Zambia for 3 days, eat vegetables with pounded nuts and attend AGOA. And now heading back to work.

    As Clinton said! . ‘’
    Quote…“” It is partly a matter of improving Africa’s infrastructure. But the most important limiting factor isn’t roads. It’s people.”

    As I have mentioned time after time. Development starts with the mindset the way you think and how you connect yourself to other people that can make your passion and dreams come true.
    I was delighted to have met so many investors from USA wanting to invest into the private sectors such as – Farming, Tourism, Mining, Airlines, HealthCare, Property, Services Information Technology, Food Processing etc….

  28. The western nations have realised the advantages of doing business with Africa. We now have the Eastern & Western powers all keen to explore business ventures in Africa, particularly Zambia. The choice is all down to us. Zambia’s economy needs the private sectors to create jobs.

    We have a lot of intelligent people in Zambia that can connect minds together. I see these people from comments posted on LT

  30. Did Hillary Clinton apologize for being a co-sponsor of the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act of 2001, which destroyed the Zimbabwe Dollar, by making lines of credit at international financial institutions unavailable to the Government of Zimbabwe (Sec. 4C)?

    If not, I have to conclude that when going to Africa, she is still representing the same mining interests that sought to destroy Zimbabwe for restructuring it’s colonial economy.

    By the way, Bill Clinton destroyed the Haitian people’s ability to feed themselves, by forcing their markets to open to heavily subsidized US foodcrops, forcing Haitian rice farmers out of business.

Its the country, dirty littering, full of cars that are not road worthy. I can go on and on and on. Never mind Thanks

    It is people who litter, drive cars carelessly and disobey road traffic rules. Charity begins at home and most people’s homes are dumps. The old Zambian folk who inherited English manners are gone. We have a very young population of more than 10 million who were born after 1964 who have no sense of the civilisation that some of us inherited from what Cecil Rhodes called ‘the finest race in the world’ a people called English. I have been to Europe and I appreciate the surgical precision and incisiveness of the Germans, the flair of the Italians and the French. We can learn a lot from Europeans, but the English surpass them all- Orderly queues, honesty and time keeping. Honestly, it is immigrants like you and I that have spoiled Britain!

What is sad is that despite heavily investing interest in the Chinese,rhupia failed to answer a question about china’s influence on Africa,Hillary had to come to his aid what a shame.Why deal with people whose background you dont know?This years elections will be closely monitored by the US knowing so well where their support is,Sata has always critisied Chinese investors and one can tell from Hillary’s remarks that America has something in common with Sata over China,so who would America like to work with in this case?the answer is self explanatory.

  37. it would be interesting to hear what mr sata told secretary clinton, but it will leak as surely as it leaked with the danish journalists. for now we can safely say that secretary clinton was treated to some comedy. the grapevine has it that secretary clinton was asked by president obama to learn from mr sata how he can use the 90 days more money in your pockets to solve the problem of mass unemployment in the usa and also how he can use it for his re-election campaign in america next year.

I CAN TELL WE WILL BE CHANGING GOVERNMENT TO STOP SUCH THINGS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN. AS FAR AS ZAMBIA’S ECONOMY IS CONCERNED, I INTEND TO CHANGE EVERYTHING WITHIN 90 DAYS OF BEING OFFICE. THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE, I CANNOT SAY A LOT BECAUSE I HAVE NOT HAD ENOUGH TIME TO RECITE ALL OF BOB’S SPEECH FOR THIS MEETING. THANK YOU MADAM.

  38. Good evening

    Ofcourse she has her official duties to perform in Obama’s gov’t and this brief visit to Zed is part of them, but how long are we Africans going to play the reluctant role of listening to foreign lectures regarding our economic and political circumstances and agreeing to policies we do not believe in for the fear of losing aid?

    I believe the tables are turning. Africa is becoming top dog and so I’m more interested in the reverse process. Why don’t we get a feedback on the questions asked to Hillary by Mutati, Namugala, HH, Sata & co.? The USA owes the world a lot of explanations on several issues – we still remember the collapse of The Lehman Bros. and how we all suffered the woes caused by a few selfish individuals. Talking about people being “limiting factors”.

    • Nine Chale greetings. I liked the issues you raised about asking MMD’s Mutati and Namugala, with UPND’s HH and PF or MC Sata to tell the nation what they discussed with US Sec Gen Clinton over Zambia in 2011 and beyond.

      I hope such a discussion can be brought live on TV for most Zambians to see and check who talked sensible things with Mrs H R Clinton.

      Lets see what will be reported in the media though.

  45. I don’t understand why people are scared of China and worried about it. China is potentially the world’s biggest internal market. Imagine if you invented a small thing that every Chinese person would need to have. If this cost you 10p to produce and you sold it to every Chinese person for 110p, you would be a billionaire overnight. The world MUST cease the chance and begin to sell to China. The Chines are just as human as we are and they like the same things we do.

  46. Spot on #51. Now, this is the kind of good thinking and debate that’s constructive and adds value. There are over 1.35 billion Chinese. Just imagine, even if only 10% of them bought your product (or invention) at 110 pence each, you would still be a £ Billionaire. Americans and the rest of the progressive world know this, but not some of the citizens of our Country Zambia. Very astonishing indeed.

  47. Cont’d … Yes, the Chinese are just as human as we are and they like the same things we do. Simple things like tooth picks, sim cards etc, but they are not a topical Country per se, so they cannot grow pine trees as easily as we can (imagine how many toothpicks you can make from one long of pine), and they do not have as large a deposit of copper as we do, if at all. So, its all to do with our mindset and being misled. Xenophobia.

  48. One contributor on this blog said that Sata will come at chase the Chinese investors. It is unfortunate to think like that. Sata himslef lacks seriousness and always plays to the galleray. A serious minded presidential aspirant cannot talk like that. It shows that PF is a party without any developmental programmes. Their aim is to come and destroy whatever the sitting govt has done just because they dont like those in power. I wonder what they discussed with Mrs Clinton because the US recognises China as the major economic giant in the world. If the US can work with China, how then can PF pledge to come and chase the Chinese? Istnt this retrogressive? Stop being commical and address issues.

So to me it doesnt make sense to even host the AGOA conference unless we want to be sending yoyo corn snacks to the USA. Its very expensive to run a manufacturing company in Zambia, hence Zambia being largely dependant on foreign goods.

Building an empty structure with no equipment or patients beds, no doctors, no nurses, no medicines. And you are there blowing the vuvuzela you are. I now believe the Emperor’s New Clothes, Prince.

These guys the Post are hell bent to ensure that HH and UPND are blacked out on their news coverage. Hilary Clinton’s official visit to Zambia was a busy schudule and all items in the agenda met 100%. But our leaders once ooutside the country they tend to overstay and do all sorts of personal things like shopping, meeting old friends the list is endless. Zanis has reported well on this subject and how I wish this was a daily thing. I would have been clued to the state media.

  61. The only thing that Sata could discuss with Clinton is dicrediting China, and not any developmental issues. The man’s understanding of issues is limited at a certain point.

    Discuss economic issues, at that point he will not be of any use.

  62. No.44 The PACT was a waste of time for HH. Wolf Sata and a sheep HH can never pull in one direction. One’s interest is power and money while the other wants to serve. Foeget about HH coming together with Sata. We have known the deception that was cooking in the PACT.

    The culprits are Mmembe, Kabimba, Scott, Nsanda, Sichinga and Panji, they cheated Sata that he can go it alone.

  63. While talking to Clinton, Sata was busy covering his mouth to hide his rotten teeth.

  64. No.66, dont worry about the Post’s blacking out of UPND. They will wake up to a rude shock. We all know that Mmembe wants to be PF president after Sata, would actually be Veep if Sata ever became president, plus the Zambian Airways deal. Shame on Mmembe.

  66. Michael Sata is nothing more than a useful puppet and stooge for Western elites! He has no useful role for Zambia’s future development! The thought of a presidential candidate running on a platform of chasing away investors is truly insane!
