British High Commissioner to Zambia Fergus Cochrane-Dyet believes that the long-term end to poverty lies in broad-based economic development, driven by a vibrant private sector that benefits citizens.
Mr. Dyet said that the private sector is at the heart of any strong, vibrant economy, and that small and medium sized enterprises offer the best prospect for driving inclusive, job-creating growth.
He was speaking during the 2016 Nyamuka Zambia business competition at Radisson blu hotel in Lusaka on Saturday night.
The envoy said that his government stands ready to support people who need help turning their visions into reality.
Nyamuka Zambia is a business plan competition that is transforming and inspiring ambitious business persons to take their ideas to the next level thereby creating employment and driving the economy forward.
