Zambia FDI drops almost 50%

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Zambia fell by almost 50 percent to about US$ 560m in 2018, according to Bank of Zambia (BoZ) governor Denny Kalyalya.

Kalyalya said the significant decline was mainly due to losses of almost US$ 340m – mostly in the mining sector where some companies had encountered operational challenges, the Lusaka Times reported. As a result of the declining profitability, borrowing from foreign affiliates increased to about US$ 640m in 2018 from US$ 560m in 2017, the BoZ governor told a workshop of the Foreign Private Investment which was addressing investor perception survey results in Lusaka on Wednesday.

According to Kalyalya, in terms of sectoral performance, the manufacturing sector was the leading recipient of net FDI liability flows. He further explained that peace, security, political stability and a relatively stable macroeconomic environment had continued to be the main motivating factors for investing in Zambia.

Hello everyone my name is Regina Alfred from NJ USA. After being in relationship with Richard for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr ikhile and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his Whatsapp:+27789518085, Email: solutiontemple27@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

I have been suffering from a deadly Herpes virus (HVS) for the past (4)years now; I had spent a lot of money going from one Hospital to another looking for way to get rid of this disease, the hospital have been my home everyday residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr.Emmanuel helped someone in curing his Herpes virus using his healing Herbs, quickly I copied his email just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to a preparation for the herbs items, of which I did exactly what he instructed me to do, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, few days after i went back to the same hospital that previously confirmed me as Herpes virus positive and this time the result declared me negative to the deadly virus of Herpes virus....so I decided to share my testimony, that nothing is impossible with God, God use a man to healed me. No matter what you are passing through, no matter how deadly the sickness is and no matter what the situation is God that did mine is still going to do yours, suffering from AIDS, ALS,hiv/aids,copd, asthma..
