He said the US is at the centre of global finance and that he is honoured with the opportunity to engage with a number of investors and fund managers, looking into Sub-Saharan Africa.
Mr Hichilema said the opposition party must promote Zambia’s investment potential.

Woodrow Wilson was the 28th President of the United States of America.
The Woodrow Wilson Center was chartered by Congress in 1968 as the official memorial to late President Wilson.
It is the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum for tackling global issues through independent research and open dialogue to inform actionable ideas for the policy community.
