Mwabu is pleased to share that we were an award winner at the Techtrends Zambia Awards ceremony for the Year 2022.
Mwabu CEO, Ian McFadyen Attends Trade Investment Roundtable at State House.
Ian McFadyen, the CEO of Mwabu Zambia, attended a State House trade investment round table on 21st March 2023. The delegation, led by Karen Taylor of Invest Africa, compromised nine companies representing the Energy, Mining, Education, Infrastructure and Logistics sectors, among others. Zambia’s business-friendly environment and stable governance generated much investor interest.
Present at the discussion was His Excellency President Hakainde Hichilema, who encouraged the delegates to partner with local businesses to optimise trade and investment opportunities that favour collaborative initiatives. Furthermore, the President reiterated Zambia’s principle of 'Invest in Zambia, Make in Zambia and Buy Zambia' as a way to revamp and maximise the Zambian economy after years of neglect. The President also reaffirmed his position that Africa should not only be a supplier of raw materials but be fully engaged in value addition.
The Mwabu CEO praised the New Dawn Government for its initiatives to improve the investment climate in Zambia and emphasised that a quality primary school education, along with a successful Digital Transformation, are fundamental to the employability of young Zambians, a point well noted by his Excellency.
Mwabu was honoured to have been part of the official opening of the 10th edition of the Innovation Africa 2022 Ministerial Summit.
