We were honored to give the keynote address at the 9th edition of 'The Africa Debate' forum organized by Invest Africa at the historic Guildhall in London, United Kingdom. This prestigious forum convenes global businesses, private and public investment bodies, thought leaders, and policymakers, providing an opportunity to showcase the various trade and investment opportunities available in Africa, and specifically in Zambia.

During the address, we emphasized Zambia's land-linked position, friendly people, young and energetic population, and abundant raw materials, which offers a great opportunity for investment in various sectors, particularly through joint public-private ventures. We also called for investment aimed at increasing the value addition of our raw materials within African countries, for intra-Africa and global trade.

We stressed the need for African countries to harmonize digital platforms and certain laws to enable trade and investment among ourselves as we target overseas markets. It is important to note that an African rising is not meant to displace anyone, but it should benefit everyone globally. Therefore, stability and peace in our continent are paramount in attracting meaningful investments and cheaper capital.

Additionally, we underscored the importance of increasing access to education and skills development for our citizens, especially our young people, to enhance business opportunities and improve the quality of job opportunities available.
