Government has projected a 4.6 percent economic growth for the country in 2019 from the 3.4 percent recorded in 2018.

Minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry Christopher Yaluma noted that the expected growth will be achieved through partnerships with stakeholders such as the American Chamber of Commerce.

Mr Yaluma was speaking in Lusaka today, at the American Chamber of Commerce event.

Mr Yaluma, also said, government will work with different chambers of commerce to ensure that the business environment is conducive.

The Commerce Minister has therefore called on the American Chamber of Commerce to provide advice on the alternative policy measures that could be embraced to improve the business environment in the country.

And American Chamber of Commerce President Ferdinand Zaumu, said the meeting has been held to look at the 2019 economic outlook.

  4. Nonsense low figures Bwana Yaluma. Tanzania is growing at 6.8% ,Kenya is doing 6.1% ,Rwanda is galloping ahead at 8.2% ,Ghana its 8.4%
    Why do we have to accept GRZ mediocrity as good or low average figures as something to celebrate?
