Over two hundred seventy eight million United States dollars is expected to be injected in the Zambian economy by different South African investors operating in Zambia.

Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Major General Jackson Miti says about one thousand jobs will be created once the investment portfolios are fully actualised.

He mentioned that twenty four investment certificates were granted to the investors through the Zambia Development Agency (ZDA) in 2019 with six being renewed licences

The High Commissioner noted that agriculture and manufacturing sectors were leading the investment portfolios in terms of capital investment and jobs to be created.

Major General Miti added that other sectors that have attracted investments included tourism, transport and service sectors among others.

He has since expressed gratitude to the Zambia Development Agency for speedy and efficient facilitation of investment opportunities for the South African investors.
