President Edgar Lungu has met business leaders at a special breakfast meeting at which he hinted at broad policy measures to accelerate economic growth and control spending during his next five tenure.

Addressing more than 70 captains of commerce and industry at Lusaka’s Chrismar Hotel today, President Lungu said he aims at creating a more stable and predictable open market environment with increased consultation between Government and the business
community.

“I have five years now which is sufficient time to take more decisive action. I will take measures to grow the economy and control expenditure. Some measures will be painful but they will yield results and by 2021, and people will reward us for having taken such action,” the President said to a cheering audience during a closed session.

“We have been constrained to take certain measures due to political considerations. But I am glad that one of the major benefits from the current constitutional order is that it assures stability in policy formulation and implementation because there is no fear of disruption in the Presidency, at least for a period of five years under the running-mate arrangement,” he said.

“Tough decisions will be made. Some will be painful but necessary. Business confidence has oftentimes suffered because of the frequent changes in the Presidency in the last seven years.”

The President said all the ministers he will appoint must be business and public-friendly because dialogue will be the hallmark of his Presidency.

He said all components of the IMF Programme will be mutually agreed saying Government and the IMF have made great progress and reached broad consensus on the key areas of the programme.

The Head of State hinted at a rapid but progressive migration to a cost-reflective tariff structure in the electricity and fuel sectors and the restructuring of the agriculture support programme under which government provides subsidies for seed and fertilizer.

President Lungu also announced plans to restructure the Food Reserve Agency into strictly an entity for purchasing strategic food reserves, a move that would reduce on FRA’s demands on the Treasury.

He said the FRA has done tremendously well in reducing crop waste and now we want them to reduce on its resource demands on the Treasury.

“Zambia is a promising economy in Africa and has attracted significant regional and international investment over the last decade. However, the past decade has also shown at various times how vulnerable the Zambian economy is to the global economic growth trends and has found itself amidst a global decline in commodity prices, emerging market interest and exchange rate price volatility and ever increasing electricity utility shortages due to slow infrastructure investment, thus not being able to keep up with demand from a growing economy. As a Government, we are here to listen to you and ensure that our local businesses are protected from the absolute advantages international companies have.”

Co-moderators of the business breakfast, entrepreneurs Guy Phiri and Mark O’Donnell delivered a message of congratulation on behalf of the business forum, which has organised itself as an independent think-tank to advise government on the interests of industry.

The business leaders told their stories of hope they have seen in the resilience of the economy under the difficult period of electioneering and general slowdown in the global economy.

“There was not much panic among investors during this period but instead we saw remarkable transactions by major corporations buying assets on the Zambian market,” said Mr. Caesar Siwale, the CEO of Pangaea Securities Limited, a leading investment advisor.

      Its the IMF that is always in the driving seat, Just tell the Zambians to prepare them selves for the bad times ahead, when PF was borrowing without a plan you did not know that such a time will come, Now those who thought PF borrowing was okay will be in for a big shock, bring it on let the people who voted PF feel the pain while the leaders like EL will be enjoying even gating cuts from the very IMF loan, the poor man on the street will be the one to bear all the pain, This is what happens when you let komponyas rule the country.

    • @Dombwa,
      Poor people celebrating!
      This should tell you something about Zambian virtues.
      Zambians value God more than wealth.
      Zambians value peace more than the food they eat
      Zambians value humility more than arrogance .
      Zambians value unity more than jobs.
      In short, what do you value yourself.
      There are places on earth that are rich but there is no peace.
      What is the point of bring a millionaire in Syria at this time.
      You must Aldo understand that rich people are not necessarily the happiest, on the contrary the opposite is true.
      In conclusions, Zambians would rather have God, and Jesus Christ their saviour than wealth.
      That is what explains to the joy you saw on the poor people.
      So, never focus on one dimension when you are looking at society.
      Otherwise you miss it…

      To continue..
      So your observation must help you to assist your political party leaders or leaders of the patty you support to understand that there is more life for a Zambian than just the economy.
      This why you may wonder why Zambians have rejected HH 6 times despites his claim to be an economist who claims he can fix the economy. Zambians look for a leader, who will look at their lives and not just look at their economy. A great lesson indeed .
      In conclusions, Zambians would rather have God, and Jesus Christ their saviour than wealth.
      That is what explains to the joy you saw on the poor people.
      So, never focus on one dimension when you are looking at society.

      Your question seem to come with a certain judgement that matches your view of the two.
      Therefore I do not need need to contradict you. I hope your view matches the views of the majority of Zambians. Zambians have interacted with both HH and ECL and they better placed to answer that question during elections. If they view HH to be one who can promote Christianity in Zambia, then congrats to him.
      If they, on the other, hand thry think that it is ECL who can promote Christianity in Zambia then congrats to ECL .

      Did you know that when whites came to enslave us they first used the bible to indoctrinate us to point of submission to whatever evil they intended to subject us to. This is the same method African crooks like Lungu are now copying.
      During the campaigns Lungu was masquerading as a christian just to blindfold poverty stricken Zambians that he is the miracle man to solve all their problems if they worship him. And for sure illiterate Zambians worshipped him.
      Evidence that Lungu replaced Jesus could clearly be seen on vehicles reading” CHRISTIANS FOR LUNGU” when it should be christians for Jesus.
      To a certain extent we Zambian like peace BUT not at the expense hunger, disease and death caused by PF ‘s injusice and thieving.

    • Now that PF has stolen over $12billion dollars in just years, Lungu has no chioce but to rush to IMF for $1.5billion in exchange for serious austerity measures which will take the country back to UNIP days of queues and worthless kwacha.

      Zambian economy does need a miracle man but a very thoughtful individual like HH and GBM to sort it out.

      Dununa reverse iyo yamba kubwela ka. IMF means K20 fuel, K200 a 25kg of mealimeal, expensive electricity, expensive education no bursary, $1 = K150 by january next year.

For some reason you have placed yourself in the position of the Almighty like most PF cadres who were declaring that the light has won and darkness has lost and all such nonsense…. Nonsense because you cannot measure one true level of faith and judge another in comparison… its a flaw people get themselves into and the Bible cautions severally about individuals like yourself and “Christians for Lungu” (By the way Dr. Liya Nawa Mutale is just trying to get absolution from the BIG CEEC loan she has not repaid) … People who want to Scream their Christianity and how much they pray unlike others… even Jesus had a parable for chaps like you

  1. As a matter of urgency fuel subsidies should be removed and create a good environment for Zambian small businesses to thrive. on top of this if you tackled corruption and reduce ministerial expenditure, your 5 year term will be a successful one. We will support you every step of the way through out your term. Please also continue your One Zambia – One Nation motto as we need to be together more so now. Thanks

  2. one of the major reasons why the IMF loan cud not be put to gud use was the fact that zambia was also at the same time going thru the period of privatization, yes its true IMF loans in many africa countries have not yieded positive results and one of the contributing factors is that the funds by many govt, has been or was misplaced. for example in our case most of those funds where used to resastitate the mines and most of it actually went on payments of retirement packages for the retrenched miners during rivatization which even most of those retirees neva got and enjoyed,meaning the funds where misapriopriated and someone even benefited more (HH) AND NO INVESTMENT WAS MADE as per the initial plan. in our current situation weall kw that the major focus is on the economy and job creation…

A rapid reduction will just cause an uprising and with the only 50% of voters on your side you need to be careful how bring people together to support you. DON’T LISTEN TO THE IMF or any of these WESTERN POWERS on GOVT to move of out agriculture business of FERTILIZER and INPUT SUPPORT and MAIZE BUYING bcoz that is the way to ASSURE FOOD SECURITY! They subsidise their farmers that and yet they would not like us to do the same! The hunger Zambia had under FTJ is due to failure to support small scale farmers who are now producing the excess maize we are boasting about and exporting!FRA is important just…

We are exactly where they want us to be as ’21 century slaves’. Those of you celebrating, ask yourselves a simple question, could they accept such an election in Europe or US? And BTW Kabila will soon do the same in Congo to continue the supply chain of raw materials. Africa this is your century, wake up people.

Now the reality is that HH is gone then they realize that there is nothing positive to talk about ECL and PF.

People wait for EU, US or IMF to tell them what to do while proclaiming to the world that they are a sovereign nation. Think about it, a sovereign nation which can’t fund its own budget, its health care deliver system etc. Our young people are right now getting a raw deal. Soon we will reach a point of no return.

I totally agree with you Dombwa at 1.4.Most of those people who went out to celebrate did not actually know exactly what they were celebrating for.And most of the people voted either on tribal lines or ‘ukuli chimwela’.It’s very unfortunate. People are supposed to vote for a person who they think will steer the country in the right direction. I’m afraid to say we are finished as a country because it is most likely that the future elections will also be based on tribalism,wako ni wako. It will be very difficult to erase this bad spirit which has befallen our beloved land.

Unfortunately or fortunately he must pass through elections where the majority(50 + 1)decides who should rule Zambia.

He, than anybody, knows better that that is not so simple. What do you have to do and how long will it take you to “generate those funds locally”? What happens in the meantime? We are all striving for economic independence my friend – and we have no choice but to borrow. The difference: the terms we negotiate, the priority areas we apply the funds, and above all, discipline and accountability.

Most of them died with nothing their children who could have had an opportunity to go to school could not because all the money HH got AND BUILD HIS EMPIRE. Sorry the spirits of the dead will not rest and allow him to rule this country, NEVER, NEVER.

  27. @Peace for Zambia. I totally agree with you, thats why even the Bible says in Mathew that what can it profit a man if he owns the whole world and loose his soul?

  28. @Dombwa: Eishi…my head is spinning. Zambians value poverty! I cant see this country going anyway with such dumb people who value anything that resembles poverty and hardship. Meanwhile your President has already made a U-turn and warning you of severe hardships ahead. At least HH was promising you a life. How can someone value peace more than food? Don’t you know that its food and prosperity that brings about peace? You dog, no wonder fake pastors in Zambia are laughing all the way to the banks because they sell you a non-existence commodity called “HOPE” I pity your dependents if you have any…..that you starve to death in order to have “peace”. How stupid can one be.

  29. Now this is when zambian will face reality.
    Anger will be on rampant,cost of production in any sector will go up,
    Fewer maize on the market because not every farmer will afford to grow maize due to high cost of inputs.As for PF cadres,they will have been used and dumped forcing them to become criminals.Familys will be fighting over nshima.a lot of parents will resolt to taking their siblings to government schools as they will not be able to afford private schools.
    We need a redeemer urgently.

    • HH is on record of having promised to increase electricity tariffs when he takes office, stop writing like people just rejected a savior for a Judas.

  30. @Observer,you claim to have six points at G12 yet you don’t even understand how the government works. The ten point plan can be forward to technocrats at ministry of finance and national planning for a feasibility study. I know UPND’S election defeat to PF is a bitter pill to swallow.Lastly,the folling made my wine taste even better,Sylvia Maroads,Charrotte Scout,Mwenye Musenge,and Davis Mwila who was defeated by a person he fired.

  31. How can IMF be killed with silly, stupid, lazy people like you who knows nothing except insulting and shooting down even the best programme one makes you good for nothing cadres. Get used ECL is ruling until after 5 years, so what you can do is to support him for the betterment of mother Zambia and you who does nothing in your life just waiting for HH to come give you handouts which he has failed to give to his workers and relatives.
