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.``

His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu, address during the official opening of the 5th Session of the 11th National Assembly
