According to the report in the newspaper, the Dutch government is currently studying opportunities in Zambia with a view to advising companies that operate in the country. The Embassy of the Netherlands in Zimbabwe, which oversees Dutch interests in Zambia, has commissioned a study of investment opportunities in the poultry sector in the country on the viability of the market.

The report added that AgriProFocus Zambia, in collaboration with the Poultry Association of Zambia, has been assigned to implement the study which is aimed at providing basic information on the current and prospective poultry export markets for companies based in Zambia.

Information about areas that hold potential for investment in the poultry sector is not well-documented. In addition, very little is reliably known about the interests of Zambian investors in local and international poultry industry partnerships.

A statement available with the publication said that the study is a good initiative which will identify strengths and opportunities within Zambia’s poultry sector, as well as identify opportunities for Dutch poultry business to trade and invest with Zambian partners. The study will also provide information on import tariffs and non-tariff measures on poultry products entering Zambia.

“The study will generate market intelligence on investment opportunities in the poultry sector to improve competitiveness of Zambian poultry in domestic and regional markets precursor to attract investment from Dutch businesses,” the statement said.
