Zambia: Yamba calls for evaluation of MNCs' mining contracts
17 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Lusaka: Secretary to the Treasury Fredson Yamba says there is need to evaluate the performance of exploration and mining contracts signed with multinational companies with an aim of ensuring value addition occurs locally. And UN Zambia resident coordinator, Marin Clemensson, says there is considerable criticism in Zambia about the mining industry not contributing enough to the economy and social wellbeing of the country's population. Meanwhile, African Union regional delegate to southern Africa, Dr Salif Sada Sall, said the AU is calling on its member states to care about the redistribution of wealth.


Zambia toppled on copper faces rising bond costs
14 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Lusaka:  Zambia’s second Eurobond will prove costlier than its debut issue in 2012 after the budget deficit ballooned in the nation, which lost its spot as Africa’s biggest copper producer last year. Spending reforms by President Michael Sata, whose 2011 election victory ended two decades of rule by a single party, were met by a Fitch Ratings downgrade last year deeper into junk and the continent’s worst bond performance. Zambia’s dollar security due September 2012 lost 9.7 percent in the past 12 months, compared with a 17 percent return in African sovereign bonds, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co. indexes.


SA 'non-tariff barriers' stifling intra-SADC trade - Fundanga
13 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Lusaka: South Africa's unfair trading practices are frustrating a diversified intra-regional trade in SADC, says Dr Caleb Fundanga. Making a presentation at a Consumer Unit Trust Society (CUTS)-organised discussion on regional trade on Monday evening, Dr Fundanga, the former Bank of Zambia governor, said South Africa still had in place a number of non-tariff barriers where some agricultural products from the region cannot enter their market for one reason or another. "Zambian beans for example cannot enter that market yet our beans is better than most of that South African beans found on their shelves," he said. "Recently, Vice-President Dr Guy Scott told Parliament that Zambian grapes cannot be sold in South Africa. The South Africans alleged that the grapes were affected by a certain disease. These are non-tariff barriers that need to be removed."


Simplify trade procedures, World Bank tells Zambia
13 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Lusaka:  The World Bank (WB) has urged Zambia to forge trade blocs with neighbouring countries to help tackle the rising cost of agricultural inputs. Country director for Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe Kundhavi Kadiresan said Zambia had the capacity to increase non traditional exports (NTEs) looking at the potential, but needs more trade engagements with neighbouring countries. "Zambia has a lot of opportunities to increase NTEs through agricultural products like maize, soya-beans and other products which calls for building trading blocs for integration, especially that it is a landlocked country," Dr Kadiresan said.


TAZARA extension spot on
10 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Lusaka: The initiative to extend the Tanzania Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) railway line to Burundi through Mpulungu will certainly bolster economic outlay as Zambia seeks to accelerate growth anchored on critical sectors of the economy. The Great Lakes Region (GLR), where Burundi is located, provides a fertile ground for trade and economic expansion for Zambia which is centrally located.  From a simple analysis, the extension is a mammoth project which requires colossal sums of money considering that the railway line will have to be tapped from Kasama or Mungwi at Nseluka area to Mpulungu before it is laid through the vast Northern part of the country to the GLR.


Southern Africa Quarterly Review and Analysis: 3rd Quarter 2013
6 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Tunis:  Economic activity in Southern Africa was vibrant during the 3rd quarter as the region remained on course to attain a projected annual average growth rate of 4.4 percent. In Angola strong growth in the non-oil sector continued to boost overall economic activity. Also, planned new gas and oil fields coming on stream are envisaged to drive higher growth. Botswana’s economic recovery continued with increasing activity in all sectors. The economy in Lesotho continued to show resilience, largely supported by an improved performance in diamond mining. Malawi is benefitting from improved investor confidence, which is enhancing the availability of foreign exchange to the economy. Also, Malawi’s tobacco marketing session for the third quarter showed higher sales that further the increased availability of foreign exchange. Growth picked up in Mozambique as the adverse effects of the large floods from the beginning of 2013 continued to subside. Economic growth rebounded in South Africa – albeit significantly below the estimated potential – at the back of expansion in manufacturing activities,. In Swaziland growth continued to improve gradually, largely driven by recovery in manufacturing and construction activities.


Kasumbalesa: "DRC to submit security report to SADC"
5 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Lusaka:  Minister of Foreign Affairs Wylbur Simuusa says authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have indicated that they will soon submit a report to the Southern African Development Community (SADC) on measures taken to address security concerns raised by international truck drivers who transport goods to and from that country. Mr Simuusa said security concerns raised by international truck drivers are noticeable and should be urgently resolved by authorities in the DRC.  He also said SADC government officials in charge of transport will be discussing the matter at a forthcoming SADC meeting.


Scott cautions Africa on tax evaders
5 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Livingstone: Vice President Guy Scott is concerned that African countries have continued to allow companies registered in the British Virgin Islands known for tax evasion to operate in their jurisdictions.  Speaking during the official opening of the third regional conference for the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) for African and Indian Ocean countries in Livingstone yesterday, Dr Scott said it is sad that African countries have continued dealing with companies from countries known for tax evasion and without extradition treaties. “We know that such companies want to engage in tax evasion but we allow them to register and operate in the country, there is need not to register such companies. People get cross or angry that money is leaving Africa,” Dr Scott said.


Zambia's economy 25% bigger after rebasing
3 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Lusaka:  Zambia's economy is now a quarter larger at $16.7 billion (12.2 billion euros) after the changing of its base year from 1994 to 2010, the statistics office announced Thursday.  "According to the benchmark estimates the GDP (gross domestic product) for 2010 is estimated at 97.2 billion kwacha," said Central Statistical Office director Goodson Sinyenga. "The new estimates are 25.2 percentage points higher than the old which were estimated at 77.7 billion kwacha," Sinyenga said in a statement.

3 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Lusaka:  Zambia recorded a trade surplus valued at K 283 Million in January 2014 from K 161 Million recorded in December 2013.
