Norway helps Zambian power to more efficiency

Oct 20, 1997 02:00 AM

Sept. 3, 1997 The Norwegian government has granted Zambia about $ 2 million to help the country commercialise its state-owned electricity company.
The money is aiming at promoting the commercialisation process of the Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation (ZESCO), which is the only state-owned power supply company in the country.
At a receiving ceremony, Clestine Kabalu, permanent secretary of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, said the money would help improve ZESCO's efficiency. Jon Lomoy, Norwegian Ambassador to Zambia, said the money would be used to purchase equipment and train ZESCO staff in an effort to improve the operations of the company.
The money would also improve ZESCO's capacity to generate power effectively to all parts of the country, stressed Lomoy, adding that reliable power supply is vital to the country's economic development.
