THE Southern African-Zambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry is inviting local firms to participate in a trade mission to be held in Zambia next month.
The trade mission from 16 to 19 April seeks to link companies in different sectors of the economy with potential regional and international investors.
Africa Exchange, an organisation that seeks to promote regional and international trade and investment, is working in collaboration with the Southern African-Zambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry to facilitate the mission.
Africa Exchange director Mrs Arlene Wilson-Max said the trade mission was also being facilitated in collaboration with the South African embassies in Zambia, the Zambia Development Agency and the Ministry of Commerce, Trade and Industry.
“The aim of the trade mission will be to introduce your company to potential counterparts. We will be facilitating 10 to 15 meetings for each company that participates in the trade mission,” she said.
She said the trade mission was coming at a time when her organisation and other players were seeking to enhance growth of companies in Africa.
“In a bid to enhance the successful business growth of companies into the African continent, Africa Exchange, Africa Project Access and the Southern African-Zambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry have embarked on a programme that focuses on the development of regional and international trade and investment.
“We provide assistance to private sector companies who wish to grow their market share into African countries by hosting events, trade missions and setting up bilateral meetings with potential counterparts,” she said.
