PRESS STATEMENT ON AN INDIAN INVESTOR IN THE HEALTH SECTOR FOR RELEASE TO THE MEDIA ON MAY 20, 2017 

AN Indian investor has showed interest to set up a 100 bed capacity specialized hospital in Zambia.

PRATHIBA Industries Limited Deputy Chief Executive Officer KULKARNI RAVI says his institution wants to execute the project through a partnership with other Indian investors to actualize the green -field project.

MR. RAVI said this when he called on Zambia’s High Commissioner to India JUDITH KAPIJIMPANGA at the Zambian Mission in New Delhi, India.

“We can start with a 100 bed capacity hospital focusing on non -communicable diseases and more especially complicated cases such as kidney, heart and lung transplants,” said Mr. RAVI.

And Zambia’s High Commissioner to India JUDITH KAPIJIMPANGA says her Country puts construction of a specialized hospital as priority number one to cut on costs as over 100 people travel to India every quarter for specialized treatment.

She has since called on PRATHIBA Industries to travel to Zambia to appreciate how conducive the Country is for investment.

MRS KAPIJIMPANGA who is also accredited to Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Maldives and Singapore, says Zambia is surrounded by 8 Countries which would allow the investor to get value for his investment as people from the said Countries equally travel to India.

She says Zambia has an advantage as it has enough land for valuable investments especially establishment of a specialized hospital to deal in kidney, heart and lung transplants as well as cancer.

 “We can easily connect You to the Zambia Chambers of Commerce and Industry with guidance from Zambia Development Agency so that if You are serious, You can get things done so easily. For such investments, land can be made readily available however, take note that we do not entertain speculation because Zambia wants serious investors,” said Mrs. KAPIJIMPANGA.
