Zambia has awarded a Chinese firm a $1.2 billion contract to expand part of a key road linking Zambia to the Democratic Republic of Congo and southern African neighbors, President Edgar Lungu said.


China Jiangxi Corporation for International Economic and Technical Cooperation (CJIC) will build the 321 km (200 mile) Lusaka-Ndola dual carriageway over four years, Lungu said during the launch.

Zambia is Africa's second biggest copper producer and Ndola is the capital of the nation's copperbelt region.

Chinese investment in Zambia already includes roads, agriculture, mining and energy projects such as a 750 megawatt-hydro-power station in the south of the country.
