The NAPSA Board Chairman, NAPSA Chief Executive Officer, NAPSA and ZCCM-IH senior, management and staff, Members of the Press, Good morning.
I am happy to be here to present this dividend cheque to the National Pension Scheme Authority, of approximately K7.9 million.
NAPSA is one of our key shareholders with a 15% stake in ZCCM-IH.
This fourth dividend cheque is a fulfillment of one of our strategic pillars, and today, this is a demonstration of our commitment to our shareholders, for them to get a return on their investment in ZCCM-IH.
We remain resolute in seeing that ZCCM-IH continues to be profitable, driven by the strategies we have devised in our 2018 to 2023 strategic plan.
Our strategic plan is underpinned by a transformative investment agenda aimed at driving sustainable growth in the company for the benefit of all our stakeholders.
Ladies and gentlemen, even though Copper remains the mainstay commodity within our Group, we are widening our footprint in the mining sector by developing new product lines such as Manganese in Central Province, and Gold processing in Rufunsa, Mumbwa, and Mwinilunga.
All these projects are just waiting finalisation of statutory approvals, which we envisage should be concluded anytime soon.
We are focused on generating consistent and predictable income through investments in brownfield and Greenfield projects while ensuring and maximizing value for our shareholders.
We remain positive about the future outlook of the Company, as we continue to create value and sustainable growth in line with our strategic plan activities.
Thank you all for listening.
