Prior to our Conference scheduled for end of May (26-27th), H.E. Sylvain Berger and the FZCC had a working session on March 11th at the Residence, with representatives of French and Zambian companies involved in renewable energy. All willing to support the event and actively participate: TOTAL, NEOEN, VIVO ENERGY, COPPERBELT ENERGY CORPORATION and EMERGING COOKING SOLUTIONS.
LAFARGE, RAZEL BEC, ENGIE POWER CORNER & AFRICA GREENCO have also expressed their interest to sponsor the event, but could not attend the briefing.
The objective was to present the concept of this 2-day conference/seminar, give more details about the agenda and the organization in order to get feedback from prospective sponsors.
These last few weeks, the FZCC and the Ambassador already had preparatory meetings with the Ministry of Energy. The executive team has also started to work with some of the sponsors, individually, to develop thematic discussions and contents.
