The Star Early Edition - - TRUMP FOCUS -

TRADE In­vest Africa (TIA), an ini­tia­tive of the De­part­ment of Trade and In­dus­try(dti), and the South African Elec­troTech­ni­cal Ex­port Coun­cil are lead­ing a joint spe­cialised en­ergy trade mis­sion to Lusaka, Zam­bia. The trade mis­sion, tak­ing place yes­ter­day and to­day, aims to fa­cil­i­tate mar­ket ac­cess and un­lock in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties ex­ist­ing in the Zam­bian en­ergy sec­tor, the dti said. Ac­cord­ing to TIA act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive, Ler­ato Mataboge, the trade mis­sion was in re­sponse to the deficit in gen­er­a­tion ca­pac­ity, trans­mis­sion line roll-out, and uni­ver­sal ac­cess to elec­tric­ity in Zam­bia. “The mis­sion is ex­pected to pro­vide TIA with an op­por­tu­nity to iden­tify and take ad­van­tage of trade and in­vest­ment leads in the Zam­bian en­ergy sec­tor.” – ANA
