An initiative to champion the country’s economic development and across the African continent dubbed ‘Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Africa Roundtable Zambia Chapter’ has been unveiled.

This is according to Charles Nakhoze, Interim Chairman for CEO Africa Roundtable Zambia Chapter at the launch and the Zimbabwe-Zambia Business Roundtable in Lusaka on Monday.

Nakhose said the chapter was also aimed at enhancing its vision which advocated for a coordinated and shared corporate world thriving for inclusive and sustainable economic development across Africa.

“This launch and roundtable has been made possible through collaboration. In this respect, I would like to express appreciation to all our key partners both from Zambia and Zimbabwe for their valuable stakeholder and technical support.

“The work programme will cover the launch of the CEOART Zambia chapter and the Zim-Zambia business forum aimed at encouraging networking, collaboration, partnerships and alliances across the diverse sectors in both countries,” he said.

Small and Medium Enterprise Development Minister Elias Mubanga, said the launch of the Zambia Chapter and the Zim-Zambia Business Forum was well timed for the country and the continent.

Mubanga said this provided the continent with the opportunity to deal with diverse challenges in a coordinated approach and to refocus economies in a way that would stimulate broader, resilient and more sustainable growth and development going forward.

“In light of this, I would like to acknowledge the CEO Africa Roundtable as a platform for championing economic development across the African region. The Zambian economy and the continent at large will definitely benefit from the existence of the Roundtable in the country,” he said.

Mubanga expressed confidence that with improved capacities in economic management among people, the continent would rise above the challenges by turning these challenges into opportunity.

“We are privileged as a country to be the second country where the Roundtable has successfully set its footprints as demonstrated by the launch of the Zambian chapter,” he said.
