THE business community on the Copperbelt has commended President Lungu for launching the C400 road rehabilitation project in the province as this will help improve commercial activities.
The chambers of commerce in Chingola and Chililabombwe said in separate statements yesterday that President Lungu means well to enhance economic development in the country.
Chingola Chamber of Commerce president Fred Musonda said companies rely on transport to deliver their goods and services.
“The high cost of doing business as a result of bad roads, especially in Chingola, has impacted negatively on consumers, as companies are passing on the costs to consumers,” he said.
And Chililabombwe Chamber of Commerce president Nelson Musonda said Government’s move to rehabilitate the road network should be commended by all well-meaning Zambians.
