Facilitating over 100 companies from Europe and Zambia, Mwanza observed the forum aims to foster partnerships and business-to-business interactions, promoting technology transfer and joint ventures along the copper value chain.

“Distinguished speakers, including President Hakainde Hichilema and key ministers, alongside EU representatives, highlight the forum’s significance in driving collaboration and sustainable practices,” Mwanza advised.

In essence, Mwanza suggested, the EU-Zambia Business Forum represents a crucial step towards enhancing the sustainability and resilience of Zambia’s copper industry.

She said harnessing collective expertise and resources, the forum aims to shape a future where the sector thrives sustainably amidst global transitions and economic growth.
