Sata promises to protect Zambians’ interests

PRESIDENT Michael Sata has promised to protect the interests of Zambians in his pursuit for increased investments in the country.

And President Sata has asked China not to colonise its neighbours such as Taiwan but treat them as equal partners in development.

Meanwhile, President Sata charmed a packed auditorium of prospective investors, Zambian government officials and senior executives of China Nonferrous Metals Corporation (CNMC) Group when he constantly passed jokes and insisted on pronouncing certain words and names in Chinese.

During an interactive session at the China-Zambia Economic and Trade Forum organised by CNMC and the Zambian Embassy in China in partnership with Zambia Development Agency and Zambia Tourism Board, President Sata said the government would protect the interests of the Zambians in sourcing for investments from foreign countries.
