GOVERNMENT says the sustainability of the motor industry in Zambia will require a good road network.

Speaking at the fifth Lusaka Happening Motor Show in Lusaka on Saturday, transport deputy minister Mwimba Malama said the government was keen to develop and rehabilitate roads in the country through projects such as the Link Zambia 8000 and the Pave Zambia 2000.

"For the motor industry to grow and continue operating and sustaining itself, there is need for a good road infrastructure in this country. Basically this industry depends on roads as one of the modes of transport besides railway, air and water," said Malama.

And Lusaka Happening managing director Bobby Singh said all major motor vehicle dealers operating in Zambia were participating in this year's motor show.

On display were brands such as Mercedes Benz, Chrysler, Dodge, Freightliner Trucks and GWM.

Among the car classics is the 1995 Shamrock Cobra which is a replica of the original AC Cobra, the 1959 Mercedes 190 Ponton and the 1941 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Singh urged people to attend the motor show and preview the unique blend of vehicle models ranging from "the good old faithful and those fresh from the factory".

The motor show, which commenced on Friday, ended yesterday.
