IDC was established to spearhead the development of Zambia’s domestic industrial capacity, and in so doing, play a major role in creating jobs.
The IDC’s strategic focus is threefold. Firstly, the IDC will reposition the existing portfolio through recapitalisation, changing of business models, optimising asset utilisation and divestiture. Secondly, it will seek to invest in companies and industries that can leverage Zambia’s natural resources and other endowments to develop a strong home base. Thirdly, the IDC will position itself as a partner of choice for joint ventures and facilitator of citizen involvement in industrialisation through the support of local high impact growth enterprises.
