The Zambia Agribusiness and Trade Project (ZATP) is a Government of the Republic of Zambia Project being implemented through the Ministry of Commerce Trade and Industry (MCTI) with support from the World Bank. The project commenced in July 2017 and will run for five years.
The project speaks to high level national objectives with regard to Government’s determination to attain the Vision 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In line with the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP), the ZATP supports poor and emerging farmers to the greatest extent possible so as to ensure that they graduate from their current levels of production into flourishing agriculture productive ventures across all the value chains available in our country. The project also seeks to boost growth oriented Agribusiness SMEs by investing in both their technical and productive capabilities and business management skills. This will enable them to link into large buyers and grow their businesses into sustainable ventures that will not just increase agricultural production and trade but also create employment
