BRICS: Zambia taking a leading role
Leadership in Africa has been a popular topic, both locally and internationally. Just recently, the BRICS Institute offered 20 slots to Zambia for its Executive Leadership Program.
The BRICS Institute acts as a conduit for the transfer of best practices and leadership knowledge between five emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. They each, in their own right, have been recognised for their significant influence and potential. Zambia’s inclusion in the BRICS Executive Leadership Programme is a testament to the leadership capabilities and potential of the country.
The Program is a practical executive management initiative, aimed at developing world class leaders to help foster real economic growth and shared prosperity between nations.
It allows participants to gain an understanding of the economies of BRICS member states; identifying the opportunities and challenges that have shaped their economic growth. It gives technical insights into how these countries became the leading emerging economies in the world in the last 30 years.
The Program is comprised of five modules delivered in two monthly intervals over a period of one year in BRICS member states and master classes are included, which will be delivered by world-class and renowned business and economist personalities.
The Zambian High Commissioner to South Africa, His Excellency Emmanuel Mwamba, said his office will work closely with the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) and relevant ministries to ensure that Zambia’s leaders from both politics and the corporate world participate in the program.
