While Zambia's mining sector is set to continue on a positive trajectory over our forecast period to 2018, risks are mounting. The major copper producers have threatened to shelve expansion projects and delay capital expenditure due to a deteriorating regulatory environment in the country. Copper will remain the mainstay of Zambia's mining sector, while growing coal production will contribute to growth over the coming years.

Recent regulatory developments in Zambia have threatened to deter investment, as the government has shown itself capable and willing to take a hard-line approach towards decisions made by foreign companies operating in the country. In Q413, Vedanta Resources announced its intention to replace more than 1,500 Zambian workers with machines at its copper unit, Konkola Copper Mines. In response, the late Zambian president, Michael Sata, threatened to revoke Konkola's licence to mine in the country.
