Gracing the 53rd Zambia International Trade Fair, the president posited that made in Africa products are bound to fail if the continent fails to adopt an industrialization agenda.

One of the major challenges faced the exports of goods and services in Africa has been the ability for such products to meet international standards – a development which has seen China and the EU ban Ghana and other African countries from exports.
