LUSAKA, Zambia, September 12, 2016/APO/ --

Zambia is one of the most accessible and investor-friendly countries in which to conduct real estate business in Sub-Saharan Africa. This is evident from the considerable number of foreign and Pan-African investors who have developed and invested in various  large-scale projects across Zambia.

Despite the commodity slump and uncertainty surrounding the recently held elections, there has been substantial growth in real estate investment from both local and regional investors. ‘We have seen numerous transactions over the last 12 months with companies such as Mara Delta, SA Corporate, Quantum Global, African Life, FQML and Primetime growing their portfolios in Zambia .’ Kfir Rusin, General Manager, API Events

One sector that has received special attention is the retail sector, with Zambia having one of the highest formal retail penetration rates in Africa. ‘Retail development in Zambia will  continue to flourish but i think it will evolve and that  opportunities  will be  in secondary cities and smaller nodes around Lusaka.  Local  investors  especially institutional  investors are also playing a  key role in  development  and  acquisitions.’ Victor Sodala, CEO, Pylos Zambia

The ZamReal Property Forum (, being held on September 28th at the Radisson Blu, Lusaka will bring together local and regional property stakeholders to discuss these rising sectors in the most beneficial forum to date – key topics and sectors to be covered will include: The business of real estate in Zambia, Retail Opportunities, logistics, housing, infrastructure as as well as discussions surrounding the growing commercial office sector.  

‘The country’s liberalised economy and well developed legal framework set Zambia apart from its neighbours. The holding of this forum in Zambia goes to underscore its attractiveness an investment destination of choice in sub-Saharan Africa. The forum will be an excellent opportunity for investors to have a first experience of the Zambian retail market and for the country to market itself and attract foreign direct investment into the sector.’ Mpangwe Mutwale, Commercial Property Finance Specialist, First National Bank, Zambia
