The development potential of Zambia is rising as infrastructure is being put in place. It now has so many more opportunities for investors, as Hon. Lawrence Evans, Zambia's Deputy Minister of Tourism & The Arts says in this TV show.

Development potential and investment opportunities

And I think we’ve carried on like that, you know, we’ve been a very, very friendly country, you know, to accommodate people. And I can tell the investors out there that, you know, come to Zambia, you’ll never miss anything and we are going to look after you.There are a lot of opportunities. Before every person looks into investing into a country, you need to look at the stability of that country. How stable is the political scenario there? What has that country got to offer, in terms of protection, you know, to the investor? How safe is that person’s money? What is there for them, you know, to bring the money into the country? What are the returns, you know, for them, you know, when they bring their money into the country? And I think for a county like Zambia I would say, you know, we’ve for a long period of time, you know, lagged behind in a way that, you know, we’ve never actually had roads, you know, like going to the northern circuit which is actually our point now where we should actually look into. If one comes into Zambia and says, “Well you know, you’ve got the nicest falls that we’ve ever seen, you know, the Victoria Falls.” And yet you know, we’ve actually never had a chance to get people, you know, to go to places like Kalene Hills where the source of the Zambezi River is. So those are some of the things that we should be looking into, you know. Where we should actually look into developing these areas so that when people come and visit the Victoria Falls the next thing they should go to now is to go to the source of the Zambezi River. The Hospitality Channel is very interested in investor behaviour and the development potential for hospitality in local and international regions. We will continue to bring you TV shows on these subjects.
