The American Chamber of Commerce in Zambia (AmCham Zambia) aims to serve American citizens, American controlled companies doing business in Zambia and Zambian businesses already or seeking to be involved in business with the United States. The objective of the AmCham is to further the development of commerce between the United States and Zambia, to promote the interest of our members in trade and investment and gather as well as disseminate information on trade and investment. AmCham Zambia achieves this by establishing a network of forums for sharing information, exchanging ideas and interacting with relevant American and Zambian policy makers. It is the ultimate goal of the Chamber to increase commerce and trade between the United States and Zambia.
AmCham Zambia was launched in June 2011 after the successful African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) Forum. The forum featured a high level delegation from the United States, including then U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and then U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Ron Kirk, who participated in the Chamber’s launch in Lusaka as the Guests of Honor.
AmCham Zambia has come to enjoy four years of growing membership, activities and partnerships with U.S. and Zambian public and private sector institutions. AmCham Zambia currently has members spread across Zambia, with the majority based in Lusaka. The Chambers membership has businesses that belong to a variety of sectors, but a large portion belongs to the financial, industrial and agricultural sectors.
In 2015, the Chamber looks forward to co-hosting a delegation of American business schools, presenting a two-part corporate social responsibility workshop, exhibiting at the Zambia International Trade Fair, hosting a golf tournament and celebrating our annual Thanksgiving dinner.
