Agri-business

Zambia enjoys 40 percent of sub-Sahran Africa’s water resources, and it has been long been noted that Zambia has great potential to become the bread basked of Southern Africa. However, of the 58 percent of land suitable for agricultural production, only 14 percent is under cultivation owing to a majority of the farmers being dependent on rain-fed growing cycles as there is little mechanical and technology applied to irrigation and crop management resulting in low productivity. Due to little or no mechanical irrigation, Zambian farmers have faced challenges in cultivation in times of poor climatic conditions and specifically poor rains. It is imperative that more impetus is put towards achieving agricultural diversification in both the crop and fisheries and livestock subsectors. The sector's potential can only be unleashed if it can harness the strength and brains of Zambia's fast-growing youth and women population.

Mining

The privatization of the Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines in the late 90s along with the implementation of fiscal policies in 2004 transformed the economic performance of Zambia. Under the Mines and Minerals Development Act 2008, the government simplified licensing procedures, created a favorable investment environment and placed minimum constraints on mining activities. As a result, the mining sector of Zambia in the last two decades has experienced tremendous growth and investment. The Zambian government is focused on economic diversification to reduce its reliance on the copper industry.
