  3. The question is what is the purpose of going to hold this in South Africa? The point does not come out very well. Is it because we do not have convention centres that are worth anything in Zambia? or are not worthy associating with the initiative being promoted? Are we targeting the South African business men and women?

  5. South Africa Looks to US, UK, Germany, Singapore, Canada, Japan, Italy or should I say the first world for Investors. Is it that the second hand mentality is so ingrained in our brains that we can seek second hand investment from SA?
