WORKS at the Multi Facility Economic Zone (MFEZ) in Chibombo district are progressing well with access tarred roads having been opened up, says Central Province minister, Sydney Mushanga.
Mr Mushanga said he was impressed with the progress at the site where about 500 jobs had been created.
When completed, Mr Mushanga said, the project would create about 5,000 jobs for the local people.
The minister said the contractor, Jiangxi United Industrial Investment of China, was working on six big structures which would house more than 30 factories.
“Due to the successful hosting of the Central Province Investment and Exposition, Jiangxi United Industrial Investment has begun construction works at the site which will house more than 30 factories,” Mr Mushanga said.
Mr Mushanga, who is Bwacha constituency Member of Parliament in Kabwe, said the contractor would next month start the construction of an office complex, a hotel and housing units at the same site.
