Mr Kaluba said IDC takes pride that the bank is performing well and excellent work is being done by management, despite the competitive environment that exists in the banking sector.

He further said the dividends the IDC receives are used to invest in new ventures and create jobs, and was therefore, proud of the impact that Indo-Zambia bank is having on the country.
