The Kitwe Chamber of Commerce and Industry -KCCI- says investments being channeled into copper production by various mining companies will boost economic growth and job creation in the country.
KCCI president Allan Nyirenda says mining companies’ move to start budgeting for high production is a positive development for stimulating business, economic growth and job creation.
Mr. Nyirenda explains in Kitwe that with the steady increase in commodity prices mining companies are investing in production and recalling retrenched workers.
With increased production in the mines Mr. Nyirenda is confident that the Country’s economy will end on a positive note.
And the National Union of Miners and Allied workers is equally happy with increased production in the industry.
NUMAW President James Chansa said the union is happy with the number
of retrenched miners who have been recalled so far.
He urged the mining companies to consider recalling and creating more job opportunities for local people as production picks up.
