"As you may be aware, Zambia has a housing deficit of nearly 1.4 million units and the interest by our colleagues to invest in Southern Province and Choma in particular is most welcome... They have capacity to mobilise US$10 billion of investment in various projects in Southern Province..."

They are interested in real estate, agriculture, mining, steel works and putting up a cement plant. We are told they have already engaged the Choma Municipal Council on the possibility of setting up a shopping mall in the new provincial capital of Southern Province.[view whole blog post ]
