Zambia is one of the largest producers and exporters of copper in Africa. The mining is a major economic sector in the country, contributing significantly to Zambian government revenues, mainly through mining royalties and VAT. In 2017, it contributed to 29.1% of total government revenues. The Zambian’s mining sector scores weak in the Resource Governance Index 2017.
What Are We Doing in Zambia?
We are working with the Zambian Revenue Authority (ZRA) and the Ministry of Mines and Minerals Development on improving revenue collection from the mining industry.
