The Zambian president (HE Levy P Mwanawasa, SC.) has finally clinched a deal with Malaysian authorities for the establishment of an economic zone in Lusaka East.

The multi-facility center will be fashioned after the famous Kulim Hi-Technology Park (KHTP) found around the Kedah Region, in the north-west Malaysian Peninsular. 

When fully implemented this economic zone will be an integrated science park targeting technology-related industries primarily in the fields of advanced electronics, mechanical electronics, telecommunications, semiconductors, optoelectronics, biotechnology, advanced materials, research and development and emerging technologies. 

It will incorporate functional areas ranging from industrial, research & development facilities, amenities, medical and educational institutions to recreational facilities in possibly 6 dedicated zones covering the Park. We have managed to provide a visual of such a prospect here below … thanks a trillion.

R&D is an integral and very important feature of high-technology park and is carried out by private companies, public R&D organisations as well as universities located within the high-technology park.
In recognition of this, the KHTP has therefore incorporated an R&D component as part of the overall development.
