Zambia Struggles with $7 Billion Debt Burden Despite Previous Deals

Despite an earlier agreement with bilateral lenders handling over $6 billion in debt, Zambia still needs to pay down about $7 billion. The nations search for relief is made more difficult by the outstanding debt that commercial banks and bondholders owe. Despite Zambias best efforts, official creditors, led by France, China, and South Africa, rejected a plan to restructure $3 billion in debt with bondholders last October. This disparity highlights how difficult it will be for Zambia to escape its financial predicament. China has maintained its position as Africas top commercial partner for the past 15 years, with trade expected to reach $282 billion in 2023. Exhibitions such as the Made in Africa expo highlight how African nations, like Cameroon, prioritize industrialization initiatives to lessen their dependency on selling raw materials. Read More..

Grab Holdings Achieves First Quarterly Profit, Signaling Milestone for Company

The ridesharing and food delivery startup Grab Holdings achieved a noteworthy milestone when it revealed its first quarterly profit. Even though Grabs

The ridesharing and food delivery startup Grab Holdings achieved a noteworthy milestone when it revealed its first quarterly profit. Even though Grabs profits were favourable, its shares declined due to its poor year sales projection, which doubted the companys development trajectory.
