Government will endeavour to provide a safe and secure environment within which all investors will operate.
This is contained in a statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka today by Chief Government Spokesperson Kennedy Sakeni.
Mr. Sakeni assured the Chinese community at Collum coal mine and investors at large, that Zambia is safe for them and their investment.
He stated that government deeply regrets the death of a Chinese supervisor who died during a workers protest over wages in Sinazongwe, Southern province.
Mr. Sakeni said government is confident that police will carry out thorough investigations on the incident in order to bring the culprits to book.
He said the incident is unfortunate and uncalled for adding that it is abnormal of the peaceful and hospitable nature of the Zambian society.
He has since urged workers as well as employers in the country to embrace dialogue in resolving their differences.
