Government Commissions Eight Industrial Yards to Enhance SMEs Competitiveness


The Citizen Economic Empowerment Commission (CEEC) says it is pleased that the construction of eight industrial yards have been completed in all the selected districts.

CEEC Public Relations Officer Micheelo Mukata says the Commission is proud to announce the completion of the construction process of eight industrial yards in Kafue, Chipata, Mongu, Ndola, Kitwe, Solwezi, Mansa, and Kasama districts.

Mr Mukata in an interview noted that the industrial yards are meant to meet the goal of enhancing Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) competitiveness in the large manufacturing sub-sectors of metal fabrication.

“The commission is proud to announce that all the eight yards as projected have been fully completed in terms of construction with Mansa recurrently handed over the Industrial yards to the commission by the construction company.

“The commission would like to make mention that the industrial yard in Mansa is just like the one in Lusaka with 12 rooms, two auto boots, one bulk storage and one restaurant,’’ he said.

Mr.Mukata also said that three industrial yards out of the eight are operational in Chipata Kasama and Mongu districts.

He however called on various SMEs and Entrepreneurs to apply for vacancies in these industrial yards once they are commissioned.


  1. Edgar Lungu at work……..We shall miss Lungu. The man new what he was doing.
    I wish he could stand in 2026. Can someone tell me if he qualifies. I will cast my vote on him.

  2. Its not ECL’s legacy but national development projects which are financed by funding from the treasury. Development for any country is a continuos process and should not be attributed to any one individual. Leaders are elected to high offices to provide direction and not boast of this and that achievement. Let us avoid creating dictators but instead appreciate leaders contributions to the well being of the whole country and its people.

  3. Ati lungus legacy ???

    After $17 billions in debt , could not even afford to pay back loans , economy on its knees……….???

    Yeah , lungus legacy alrwite……….

  4. Pleas……….

    One would expect major industrial complex parks of manufacturing and assembly…….

    Not welding tutemba workshops…….

    Especially seeing $17 billi9n is owed………

    This was indeed lungus legacy…….

  5. We should learn to appreciate the good works. We may be insulting the former ruling party for the debts we are in, but we are busy commissioning a lot of projects initiated by them without even giving a credit to them in our speeches.
    Its time we stopped politicking as start working, its not about a party but about Zambians.
