PRESIDENT Rupiah Banda has assured Zambians that the forthcoming presidential and general elections will be free, fair and peaceful.
Speaking during the on-going Zambia Investment Forum in Livingstone, President said: “We have established a strong track record of economic, social and political stability. This has helped to create a positive climate for the private sector to invest in Zambia,” President Banda said. “As we enter the election year, I would like to reassure the Zambian people that the elections would be free, fair and peaceful.  My government and I will continue to work tirelessly to secure investment opportunities in all sectors of the Zambian economy, building on the foundations we have laid down for tomorrow’s Zambia.”

The Zambia Investment forum was officially opened by Commerce and Industry minister Felix Mutati on behalf of President Banda. The Investment Forum, which is being organised in conjunction with the Commonwealth Business Council, is aimed at bringing inward investment to Zambia and has attracted key business delegates from across the world.
The government is also in the process of establishing multi-facility economic zones (MFEZs) and industrial parks to promote the manufacturing industry and create more jobs for the Zambian people.
