PUBLIC DEBT INDABA – ADDRESSING ZAMBIA’S ECONOMIC CHALLENGES FOR A STRONGER FUTURE
The Public Debt Indaba bought together key communities in Zambia from business, the church, civil society, youth organisations and think tank sector. All are united in their view that Zambia’s debt levels are highly concerning but that there is still time to act to manage the impacts of this.
The Indaba welcomed the participation of the Government of Zambia and looks forward to constructive and collaborative approach to addressing Zambia’s debt challenge and supporting the country’s development.
The Indaba highlighted the risks of failing to act on Zambia’s growing debt for ordinary Zambians and called forgreater transparency over Zambia’s debt as well as a clear plan for dealing with unaffordable repayment levels.
