Zambia has over the past decade been in a transitional state from a land locked to land linked country, complementing regional development plans as the strategic link of the Corridor Network in the SADC and COMESA regions. Zambia’s drive to a land-linked status will enable us to facilitate trade and serve our neighbors through our inland transport infrastructure and services. In recognising the fundamental role that transport plays in Zambia’s and regional development, the Land-Linked Zambia Conference was developed as a high-level platform for constructive dialogue between stakeholders to promote the growth opportunities available in the regional intermodal transport sector. The inaugural event was held from on the 24th to 25th February 2022 in Lusaka attracting d over four hundred (400) registered delegates from nine (9) countries namely: Botswana, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Zambia being the host state.
This year, the Land-Linked Zambia Conference will be hosted from 22nd-24th March 2023 at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka. The Conference will be hosted under the theme ‘Leveraging on the Impacts of the African Continental Free Trade Area for the African Transport Industry’ focusing on the intra- Africa movement of goods and people.
The Zambia Development Agency will be participating in the Land Linked Zambia and we would like to extend an invitation for British Chamber of Commerce Zambia (BCCZ) to participate in the event by registering or contacting the event secretariat directly
