Alexander Chikwanda recently announced that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has pledged
to provide assistance to the Zambian government in the health and
agricultural sectors. Around US$15 million will support the rehabilitation of
the country’s main referral hospital. The two countries are also exploring the cooperation
in the area of localized fertilizer production, particularly the possible revitalization
of the Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia (NCZ) plant in Kafue.
