The USA embassy economic attaché Mr Phil Nervig and the president of the American Chambers of Commerce in Zambia Mr Greg Merchand were also present at the event.

BUK managing Director Mr Benjamin Katubiya described the signing of the memorandum of understanding between the two companies as a way of strengthening the ties between Zambia and the United States of America and enhancing and promoting trade between the two countries.
