The Private Enterprise Programme Zambia (PEPZ) works with the Zambian private sector to support profitable business growth. We work across three focus sectors that are key to Zambia’s future prosperity:
- Food and agriculture: To promote Zambian agricultural productivity and food processing
- Mining and mining supplies: To strengthen local manufacturing content in the mining sector
- Tourism and hospitality: To increase the Zambian share of tourist spend
PEPZ launched the Zambia Business Growth Fund to support and encourage investment in technology and skills through matched funding.
