Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, His Excellency Mr. Emmanuel Mwamba unveiled the new board at a ceremony held at the Zambian Chancery in Pretoria.

Mr. Mwamba urged the board members to work towards promoting trade partnerships between the two countries adding that there was need to strike trade balance in which both countries had a win-win situation.
He observed that Zambia’s exports of goods and services to South Africa were less as it was that country that dominated the trade between the two countries.

Mr. Mwamba further appealed to the new board to ensure that the establishment of the proposed export zone on the Copperbelt province by the Gauteng province of South Africa was actualised as it would reduce on costs of doing business.

He thanked the out-going board for their dedication and commitment to the promotion of trade and investment opportunities between the two countries.
