The purpose of BCCET is to be both a leadership and coordinating group, which will unlock the expertise of Zambia’s diverse business sector in fighting the impact of the pandemic. Our membership consists of private sector leaders, industry associations and concerned members of the private medical community. BCCET is driving the process of obtaining input from the Business Sector Interest Groups represented by each of our members. In the wake of COVID-19, we will be recommending economic and business support measures for consideration by GRZ with the goal of preservation of life and jobs.
BCCET is also composed of public sector partners. Our Government partners include Senior Government Officials. BCCET will also participate in round table discussions with various Ministers, including the Council of Ministers tasked to deal with Zambia’s response to COVID-19. BCCET has an elected board, a Secretariat (ZICA) and Business Sector Technical Advisors. These are all in place to lead engagement with Government on behalf of the wider Zambian Business Sector.
