"This Investment brief presents a profile of the Tourism sector in Zambia. The objective of the brief is to provide quick insights on the Zambian economy and the existing investment opportunities in the Tourism sector. In 2014, Zambia’s real economic growth slowed down to 6% from 6.7% realised in 2013. This outturn was less than the country’s projected growth for the year 2014 but remained above the year’s average growth of Sub-Saharan Africa estimated at 4.5%. The lower performance was mainly attributed to lower production in the mining sector which was largely as a result of operational problems, maintenance shutdowns at a few mines, low grade ore and stockpiling of concentrates."
