New Copperbelt International Airport under construction will bring change to the region

Vice President Inonge Wina says the New Copperbelt International Airport under construction will be a game changer for the region’s trade, investment and Tourism.

Mrs. Wina says she is confident that 3-hundred and 97-Million-United-States-Dollar airport once opened usher in a lot of opportunities.

She says Zambians are proud of the project which is expected to ease movement of goods and people beyond the country’s borders.

And Mrs. Wina has directed the contractor to fully actualise the resettlement plan for people that will be moved from the site of the new airport before the project is completed and handed over to government.

She says no issue must remain unattended to when the airport is opened.

The Vice President was speaking in Ndola this morning shortly before touring the New Copperbelt International Airport.

Mrs. Wina said she appreciates the challenges of COVID-19 that have delayed the completion date of the project, but that government remains hopeful that with countries around the world slowly opening up, the project will be completed soon.

And Copperbelt Province Minister Japhen Mwakalombe said the people of the region are grateful to government for the many developmental projects being implemented in the region.

Mr. Mwakalombe said government will not listen to detractors because its goal is to deliver development to the people of Zambia.

And AVIC International Senior Consultant Lei Yingqi said the new Ndola International Airport which was supposed to be completed by the end of this year has delayed due to some materials not arriving from abroad because of COVID 19.

Mr. Lei said even some training courses that were to be conducted in China for those working at the airport have been postponed because of the travel restrictions imposed by the Chinese government.
