Infrastructure Development
Last published date:


Inadequate infrastructure undermines Zambia’s potential for economic growth.  Infrastructure investment is needed in the health and education sectors, water and sanitation, roads (including inter-provincial and inter-district roads) and expanding the rail network to reduce the burden on road infrastructure.    


Zambia seeks to develop and expand its road infrastructure by building up to 10,000 km of high-quality single- and dual-carriage roads throughout the country.  In addition to public private partnerships, Zambia also aims to expand its use of toll roads to help finance road construction and maintenance.


There are ample opportunities to construct, operate, and manage infrastructure in Zambia in multiple sectors, including health, education, water and sanitation, roads, rail, and commercial real estate.
