A delegation from the Canadian Commercial Corporation is in the country to discuss with Government modalities for the construction of one hospital or more at a cost of 1 hundred and fifty million United States dollars.

And Acting President Inonge Wina says support to the country’s health system is key as the sector is fundamental to development.

Speaking when the delegation paid a courtesy call at her office in Lusaka, Mrs. Wina called on the delegation to also explore the various investment opportunities in other sectors.

She further said Government is grateful to the Canadian government for being helpful to Zambia especially in the campaign against child marriages.

And Canadian Commercial Corporation Director – Business Development and Sales for Africa and Europe, Donald Olsen says the Canadian and Zambian governments will soon sign a contract for the construction and financing of one hospital or more, depending on the requirement of the Zambian Government.

Mr. Olsen says the Canadian Commercial Corporation is hoping to finalise discussions with the Ministry of Health on the financing package which is on a commercial basis.

The two governments signed a Memorandum of Understanding in October, 2017 for the construction of a hospital or more in a location to be agreed upon.
