Trade and Investment

Zambia is a land-linked country sharing borders with eight (8) different countries, Tanzania (in the North), Malawi (in the East), Mozambique (in the South-East), Zimbabwe (in the South), Botswana and Namibia (in the South-West), Angola (In the West) and the Democratic Republic of Congo (in the North-West). This provides a big and growing market for Zambian products. The country is well positioned in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) regions, and has duty free access to the regional markets.

Zambia’s proximity to the Great Lakes Region and the entire East African region also gives it an additional advantage to wider markets. In addition, Zambia enjoys very good bilateral, regional and international political as well as economic relations with many countries. The stable political and economic environment, proximity to large and growing markets and good international relations makes Zambia an attractive destination for investment.
