ZAMBIA Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ZACCI) has expressed concern over the difficulties experienced by the business community in making international calls. In an interview, ZACCI executive director Justine Chisulo complained that his organisation was losing business and the the business community was losing millions of kwacha as they are unable to conclude business transactions.

"We do not operate in isolation, we deal with the outside world and the situation currently prevailing in the country is unacceptable and should not be allowed to continue," he charged. "We can't have a situation where business transactions are affected in this manner."

Chisulo urged the Ministry of Communications and Transport and the Communications Authority of Zambia (CAZ) to quickly address the problem before the business community suffers any more losses.

Stakeholders in the mobile communication industry have expressed concern at the continued difficulties that their subscribers have been having in making international calls due to technical and signalling capacity problems on the part of Zamtel.

Over the past few months, mobile subscribers have been experiencing difficulties in making and receiving international calls.
