Launch of the Creating Value for All Report in Zambia


The launch of the Creating Value for All report was organized in Lusaka, Zambia, on July 4, 2008. The report was launched jointly by the UN Country Team in Zambia and national representatives from the business community. On behalf of the United Nations system, the International Labour Organization led the discussion by highlighting the main tenets of the report, while the Zambia Business Forum (ZBF) facilitated the event.

The launch involved a working lunch with a series of presentations and drew participants from the banking/financial sector, media, small- and medium-sized enterprises, as well as institutions involved in fostering private sector-led development initiatives in Zambia. Actors present shared common cause with the theme of the country’s Fifth National Development Plan (FNDP) i.e. “broad-based wealth and job creation through citizenry participation and technological advancement”. In Zambia, this has taken the form of promoting private sector-led development initiatives in which enterprise development features prominently.
