As we end the official visits of Italy and France, we thank God for his mercies, provisions and grace.

Our tour has been extremely fruitful.

Below are some of the projects that we have signed for and will begin soon;

1. Airbus, the world’s giant in aircraft manufacturing, will work closely with Zambia in setting up our national airline. Airbus will provide technical services and training to the new airline.

2. Sixteen (16) irrigation dams and equipment to be set up in five (5) provinces under management of the Zambia National Service. These will enhance the capacity to produce more crops than half of the country’s current peak production.

3. 4680 small and medium scale manufacturers to receive training and hi-tech equipment from French manufacturing giant’s through the CEEC.

4. 3× 750 Megawatts solar energy plants to be set up in Lusaka, copperbelt and North-Western provinces to help make Zambia energy secure and help boost production and manufacturing.
