The Delegation of the European Union to Zambia and COMESA is hosting an EU-Zambia Business Forum from the 10th – 12th of April 2024. The forum will take place in Kitwe, in the Copperbelt region of Zambia, and the purpose of the business forum will be to identify and build commercial partnerships between actors in the copper value-chain, and to explore potential areas of value-addition in the copper-sector in Zambia.
The business forum will be a two-day event followed by a field visit to operating mines and copper wire and cable manufacturers in the Copperbelt region and other industries involved in copper value addition. The event will have organized dialogue sessions on the copper value chain and opportunities within the sector. Seeing as the purpose is to create market linkages between European and Zambian companies, the program will dedicate considerable time to business-to-business matchmaking, accompanied by a limited number of panel-debates and presentations. The target audience is companies, relevant industry associations, mining operators and financial institutions from both the EU and Zambia.
