Mr. Zhuang Shangbiao welcomed Secretary-general Roland Mcisca and his delegation members, and made an introduction about CRCC’s current development situation, various business sectors and its development in Zambia. He expressed that since the TAZARA——symbol of friendship between China and Africa constructed, there has been a history of nearly 50 years in CRCC’s overseas development and a large number of projects with great influence in the world have been built. CRCC attaches great importance to the Zambia market and has been always actively carrying out social responsibility and promoting projects in favor of improving the livelihood of the local people while participating in the construction of infrastructure in Zambia. A good brand image has been set up during the time. CRCC is wiling to further connect with the relevant departments of the government of Zambia to make full use of its own technical and financing advantages to contribute to the local economic and social development and achieve mutual benefit and win-win results.
