ZAMBIA – Chinese integrated aviation supply chain service provider, AVIC International is set to construct a water supply and sanitation system in Zambia’s Western province having won the contract by the government of Zambia to undertake the over US $41m project.

According to Fred Mulozi, regional coordinator for Western Chamber of Commerce and Industry, AVIC won the contract because of its proven good workmanship in Zambia’s construction sector.

“We are glad that the 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 and this shows that the company 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 and is greatly expected to improve water supply in the province.
