Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has called for partnerships between Chinese Investors and local people in the province to enable Zambians to benefit from their natural resources.
The Minister said partnerships between investors and local people will be key in ensuring that Zambians not only participate in economic development but also benefit from investments and their natural resources.
Mr. Lusambo was speaking when a delegation of Chinese Investors paid a courtesy call on him at his Office today. The investors have expressed interest to set up businesses in Chongwe districts among them a car assembling plant.
“China has developed to where it is today because it has policies which are supported by its people and the business community. We want also to develop our country and in our quest to do so, we need investors that will support out policies”. Mr. Lusambo has said.
He emphasised that partnerships between investors and the local people will be key in achieving sustainable development in the country.
And Mr. Lusambo has urged the Investors to respect the traditional Leadership in Chongwe District if they are to work in harmony as they actualise their investments in the area.
“Zambians are very friendly people but do not provoke them because you will not like them, they will support and protect your investments if your respect them” he added.
