Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/30/2013 -- Zambia's mining sector is set to continue the recovery seen over the last decade. The country had declining copper output throughout the 1990s, but a mixture of low taxes, privatisation and elevated copper prices has seen a substantial boost to investment and output. We expect the value of the mining sector to reach US $1.0bn by 2017, from US$770mn in 2011, marking an annual average growth rate of 4.5%.

Zambia's mining sector has been highly amenable to foreign investment since the privatisation of statecontrolled Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines (ZCCM) at the end of the 1990s. Indeed, while one of the opposition parties, the Patriotic Front, has stated that it seeks greater control of the mining sector and will increase taxes on mining companies, our Country Risk team expects the ruling party to remain in power and sustain the country's investor-friendly outlook.
