MAYORAL’S WELCOME MESSAGE
HIS WORSHIP THE MAYOR – MR. AMON CHISENGA
I am filled with interest gratitude to the governments strides made in the city of Ndola to help boost the economic lively hood of the City. These strides are evident in the numerous projects that have been initiated in Ndola amongst them the New Copperbelt International Airport, rehabilitation of road infrastructure, new modern market construction and many other projects.
It is notable that the growth of Ndola is historical and geographical as distinct from those of the other Copperbelt resources. Thus the prosperity of Ndola is based on its proximity to the nations copper mining towns and to its geographical position as the gateway to trade and traffic between the Copperbelt province and the remainder of the country thus making Ndola an economical hub of the Copperbelt.
It gives me greater joy that the once vibrant industrial area that had lost its significance due to closure of most of its companies is slowly regaining its glory posing the city in its lime light as an economic hub.
Industrialization in any city brings about urbanization through the creation of an economic growth and job opportunities that draw people to the City.
As a Local Authority we want to pledge the provision of an enabling environment for industries and other investments to thrive for the benefit of the local residents. As Ndola City Council we will adhere by the government’s policies and pronouncements. We shall strive to keep our friendly city clean through the Make Zambia Clean, Green and Healthy Campaign. I implore every resident of Ndola and the business community to work together with the local authority for the betterment of the friendly City of Ndola.
