“Throughout the campaign, Dangote Cement celebrated its loyal customers by conducting bi-weekly draws, where 110 individuals were awarded K1,000 each, alleviating financial strains during a period of heightened inflationary pressures,” he added.

According to Argrawal, the overwhelming success of the national sales promotion, which attracted over 25,000 entries from across Zambia, underscores the growth in the construction sector and signals a positive trajectory in the country’s infrastructure development efforts.

Mrs. Lilian S.

According to Bwalya, Dangote’s positive impact extends to other sectors of the economy, contributing to Zambia’s real GDP growth of 4.8 percent in 2024, despite challenges such as drought and electricity generation.

She emphasized the government’s commitment to improving the business environment through various reforms, including the introduction of investment certificate applications and online business registration.

Furthermore, she highlighted the crucial role infrastructure development plays in job creation, housing, competitiveness, and overall quality of life.

“It is also a key enabler for economic growth and development, facilitating the construction of schools, commercial properties, and infrastructure projects across all sectors,” she concluded.
