With Zambia prioritizing ICT under the smart Zambia program, Israel remains a very good example of a country that has against all odds enhanced innovation resulting in a developed agriculture industry, ICT, health sector, education sector among others.
EAZ realizes the importance of building bridges between Zambia and Israel that will result in the implementation of cutting edge technology in Zambian businesses. We call upon all stakeholders in Zambia to join hands for a coordinated approach towards national economic development.
Technologies such as the planned Center for Nuclear Science and Technology under ZAMATOM will help the agriculture sector get clearance to export produce to advanced markets, enhance medical tourism which Israel is known for and also provide solutions to industry.
