Minister of Tourism and Arts Charles Banda says a Spanish Chamber of Commerce delegation is expected in the country on July 8th 2019 to explore areas of investment in tourism.

Speaking when Spanish Council honorary representative to Zambia Ramon Diaz Bustamante paid a courtesy call on him at his office this morning, the Minister said the team is scheduled to hold meetings with Zambia Chamber of Commerce.

He said if there would be another opportunity for more business people from Spain sponsored by the Spanish Government coming to Zambia, the country will cease the opportunity to tap into that market to grow tourism.

And Mr. Bustamante said the Spanish are very interested in growing their relationships with Zambia.

He said future plans are to bring to the high level delegation of directors from the Spanish National Parks to come and know how Zambian National Parks are run.

Mr. Bustamante said his country being one of the leading tourism source markets in the world brings to the fore a wealth of experience that could be beneficial to Zambia.

He said the exchange program will also involve the training of directors from the Department of National Parks-Zambia on best procedures used in Spain.

This is contained in a statement issued to the media by Sakabilo Kalembwe, the Ministry of Tourism and Arts Public Relations Officer.

    • You cannot depend on foreigners to develop a country. What needs to be done is give incentives such as structure tax holidays to local Zambian businesses to invest in tourism.

    • When will we realise that foreigners will not develop our country? Look at this man who thinks he is announcing good news, when he and his freinds are busy selling the country to foreigners. Before we know it, all the land and minerals in Zambia will be controlled by foreigners and we will have NOTHING.

  3. Always expecting foreign business delegations. When will Lungu lead a Zambian business delegation to go explore opportunities in Angola ,Kenya or Eswatini?

    • Where are they? The ones who are supposed to be the Zambian business deligation have taken their money offshore in safe tax haven and are desperately fighting to go to state house. Where will Lungu get the Zambian busines deligation from?

  4. I didn’t know that from the 15 million people or so as a country we only have one business man. This is news to me and how very sad that that is the case.

    Then something needs to be done to change the status quo. This is not normal!

    Take his money back as soon as
    Possible. That is going to be another
