The paper therefore examined downstream or forward linkages to copper production in zambia by first exploring the scope of downstream linkages and examined the risks, opportunities and risks mitigation measures in the downstream sector of zambia's copper industry. With an estimated output of 58 200 t of reﬁned copper this year, zambia’s downstream copper production is the largest in africa “our forecast for zambian copper mine output to witness considerable growth this year will feed into downstream services, further supporting short-term refined production.
Annex c: transfer mispricing in the zambian copper industry 113 annex d: data notes for section 32 – the future macroeconomic impacts of mining 117 downstream, side-stream and lateral linkages from the mining value chain is an important opportunity that is “enhancing mining’s contribution to the zambian economy and society.
Though zambian copper mining essentially is a private industry, the government has retained a sizeable holding of the shares of the privatized mines the global copper mining industry operates with a long-term perspective, and production costs and risk are critical issues. There is considerable scope for backward and forward linkages in the copper value chain zambia’s exports of semifabricates including copper plates, copper wire, sheets and strips, and export values have increased substantially there is good scope for expanding the downstream processing of copper into fabricates.

What would it take for zambia’s copper mining industry to achieve its potential-july 2011.
Growth promotion through industrial strategies in zambia 1 introduction and summary a very strong growth but has limited potential for further downstream processing and industrial development turning to zambia, export performance confirms that these two sub-sectors had, manufacturing linkages to the copper mining sector. Our forecast for zambian copper mine output to witness considerable growth this year will feed into downstream services, further supporting short-term refined production our outlook for zambia's mining sector in 2018 remains positive as copper prices continue to rise and the country's electricity supplies improve.
China’s fdi in the zambian copper industry, which differentiates it from mining companies historically embedded in the industry – that is, originating from the united states, canada, europe and south africa.
