Sub-Saharan Gemstone Exchange Industrial Park (SGE) recently signed a deal with Australia’s Maysen and Borowski Group to construct a US$3.3bn refinery and pipeline in Ndola. When completed this would become Zambia’s second refinery and the new pipeline running from Dar-es-Salaam to Ndola projected to increase fuel production by an additional 5m litres of fuel per day. The project is expected to 5,000 permanent jobs. This becomes the first agreement under the new government. No details yet whether this will be funded entirely by the private sector or whether Government will have a stake.
