IDC was established to spearhead the development of Zambia’s domestic industrial capacity, and in so doing, play a major role in creating jobs.
Another measure to empower our citizens is to enable them to own shares in some of the state-owned companies in the country. The Industrial Development Corporation will be an important tool in achieving this goal. All state-owned enterprises must ultimately list on the Lusaka Stock Exchange within the next five to ten years so that we create opportunities for citizens to own these companies.
The following are the IDC's areas of operation and investment focus:
Business (Private and Public)
Development Finance Institutions (DFIs)
Provision of development finance
Non-financial project support and industry knowledge
Industrial policy research
Facilitation and support
