Zambia’s economy is in crisis with debt mounting and the COVID-19 pandemic. Already behind in payments for over $4m in loans, it has now suspended interest payments on some sovereign bonds. It is set to be the first country to default during the health crisis. What has caused this collapse? What are the implications for Southern Africa.

Speakers Include:

Peter Leon - Partner with Herbert Smith Freehills, co-chair of its Africa practice and a former chair of the International Bar Association's mining law committee.

Oliver Saasa - Professor of International Economic Relations | CEO, Premier Consult Limited
