Finance Deputy Minister Christopher Mvunga says investor confidence in Zambia is at its best despite the normal political uncertainty that usually comes with elections.
Mr. Mvunga says government is receiving overwhelming feedback from investors that are targeting various sectors of the income.
He says the positive investor confidence is manifesting in the strengthening of the local currency, the Kwacha.
Mr. Mvunga has explained that a loss in investor confidence would have sent the Kwacha plunging.
He has told ZNBC News in Lusaka that government’s commitment to holding free, fair and credible elections has sustained the investor confidence.
Mr. Mvunga added that the country has not witnessed any unusual happenings to trigger speculation over the levels of investor confidence ahead of the August 11 polls.
He said the economy in on track and that positive growth is assured before, during and after the polls.
