$3.7BN PUMPED INTO PPP ROAD PACKAGE

Infrastructure, Housing Urban and Development Minister Charles Milupi has announced an
investment of $3.7billion in the development of eleven roads under the Public Private
Partnership (PPP) road package.

On a social media post, the Minister explained that the construction of the eleven roads under the
PPP package will be solely financed by the Southern African Business Development Forum.
The project, dubbed Western Trade Facilitation Routes, will cover four provinces, namely;
Copperbelt, North-Western, Western and Southern and will total over 2000km.

“This PPP agreement was signed on August 10, 2021 by the Office of the Vice President.
However, as earlier assured, this government is deeply involved in establishing the ultimate cost
of the PPP project to ensure it is quoted at the right price,” Mr. Milupi explained.

The Minister further assured Zambian citizens that government will not borrow money for
infrastructure development owing to the huge public debt.

He said vital infrastructure development across the country will be facilitated through the PPP
model.
