Government says it will propose partial amendments to the trade and economic cooperation agreements signed between Zambia and Turkey.
This is to realign them to the vision of the New Dawn Administration of attracting Foreign Direct Investment -FDI- that promotes value addition to raw materials.
Commerce, Trade and Industry Minister, CHIPOKA MULENGA says it is important for Zambia and Turkey to work together to actualize the trade and economic agreements signed between the two countries and to reverse the low trade.
Mr. MULENGA says there are a few amendments that need to be brought to the table and see how they can make the agreement a reality.
The Minister was speaking in Istanbul shortly before departure for Zambia after attending the 3rd Turkey-Africa Economic and Business Forum.
Meanwhile, Zambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry -ZACCI- president CHABUKA KAWESHA said his organisation has received substantial investment inquiries mainly in agriculture and renewable energies at the just-ended Turkey-Africa Economic and Business Forum
