KALONDE NYATI, Lusaka
A FOUR million Kwacha office park has been commissioned in Solwezi to boost commerce in the town that has in the recent years witnessed economic activities following the opening of mines.
The office park developed by Kunzubo, a real estate company, wholly owned by Kukula Seed, aims to provide convenient office space that will accelerate commerce in the area.
Kukula Seed is partly funded by the Department for International Development (DFID through its Private Enterprise Programme Zambia (PEPZ) to provide finance aimed at creating and growing new businesses in North- Western Province.
This is contained in a statement issued by Kukula Seed on Friday.
Commenting on the development, Kukula Seed managing director Niels Bojsen said Kunzubo will help grow the local business environment through the provision of quality real estate facilities.
“Focusing on SMEs [small and medium-scale enterprises] and helping them grow is in line with our objectives. We want to create inspiring environments,” he said.
DFID Zambia resilience and inclusive growth team leader Martin Alsop said appropriate infrastructure will go a long way in accelerating growth in the area.
“We believe that SMEs need appropriate infrastructure and professional services to flourish and grow,” he said.
North Western Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NWCCI) president Josephine Makundo said, “We are convinced that the promotion and enhancement of SMEs through effective business support by providing quality offices at affordable prices and with ICT facilities will contribute to the growth of the SMEs – a clean, neat work environment provides ability to succeed.
Ms Makundo also said the centre will enhance networking among the SMEs and, in addition, this will be a one-stop shop with access to the chamber as well.
