Governments & Stakeholders

It’s not always easy to manage different relationships with various stakeholders, but we at Chilanga Cement PLC recognise the importance of building and maintaining relations based on active partnership, mutual respect, trust, transparency and long-term collaboration. This is particularly important especially when addressing different geographical territories and cultural boundaries.  

Meeting the demands of a rapidly changing market means commitment to cooperation and working in tandem to generate and optimise solutions to economic and social inadequacies.

As Zambia’s top exporter of clinker and cement, Chilanga Cement PLC continues to focus on market developments within the SADC region, and gradually throughout the rest of the continent. This is in line with the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), signed by African countries in March 2018.  Successfully implemented, the agreement which is in support of intra-African trade will help create a single African market of over a billion consumers with a total GDP of over $3 trillion. This will make the continent the largest free trade area in the world, and sets the tone for economic diversification, all round participation, and inclusion.
