Legal Market Overview

The election of Hakainde Hichilema has raised hopes that Zambia will become a more open and democratic country, something which has been demonstrated by increased foreign investments in the nation. Changes to tax and mining laws have been designed to apply to investors, particularly seeking investment from western businesses. This has resulted in many businesses resuming work which had been put on standstill for several years. During the pandemic, Zambia defaulted on its sovereign debt after several years of difficulties, becoming the first African nation to do so because of the pandemic. Copper and cobalt mining continues to be a key driver of activity.
