AVIC International is set to construct a water supply and sanitation system in Zambia’s Western province. This is after the company was awarded the contract by the government of Zambia to undertake the over US $41m project.
Chinese project in Zambia
According to Fred Mulozi, regional coordinator for Western Chamber of Commerce and Industry, AVIC deserves the contract because it has proved its good workmanship in Zambia’s construction sector. “We are happy that government has awarded the construction of a water and sanitation supply system to AVIC International, the Chinese company has had a good number of projects in Zambia, this shows that the firm is able to deliver according to the expectation of the people,” he said.
He further added that Chinese experts are building modern infrastructure that will stand a test of time, and this should be an opportunity for Zambians to learn the different technologies being applied in the construction industry.
Apart from the construction of a water and sanitation project, AVIC is also working on the road network in Mongu district in the province. Construction of the water supply and sanitation system in Zambia is expected to commence this month. The project is expected to improve water supply in the province.
