Agricultural Gains in Zambia

A recent article in The Economist (June 24th 2004) caught our attention, and for the viewing pleasure of the rest of our visitors, below are some key points:

  • More than 300 Zimbabwean farmers have been welcomed by President Mwanawasa
  • More than 150 farms are now leased from the Zambian government
  • One such farmer has invested more than $10 million and employed over 3,500 people
  • Zambia’s tobacco crop production estimates are set to double in 2004 and have lured Universal Corporation into investing in Zambia
  • Lusaka will soon be host to a tobacco processing plant, scheduled for completion in 2007
