Belgian investors are set to undertake a trade and economic mission to Zambia, next year to explore business opportunities.

The Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture Belgium-Luxembourg-Africa-Caribbean-Pacific (CBL-ACP) in collaboration with the Belgian government have organised the trade mission.

Henry Ngilazi, Embassy of Zambia Charge D’Affaires in Brussels said the multi-sectoral trade and economic mission has attracted representatives and consultants from the construction, engineering, energy, furniture and design, industrial equipment, logistic and transport, medical, software and data processing sectors.

Belgium’s Foreign Affairs Director for sub-Sahara Africa, Ambassador Jozef Smets endorsed Zambia for the trade mission because of the country’s efforts and commitment to improving its business climate.
