Canada-Zambia Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) Negotiations

Background

Canada and Zambia held a first round of Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) negotiations in May 2012. Minister Fast announced the conclusion of negotiations in March 2013.

A bilateral FIPA will provide greater predictability and certainty for Canadian investors considering investment opportunities in Zambia, and will underscore Zambia’s reliability as an investment destination. Canada’s objective in entering these negotiations is to secure a comprehensive, high-quality agreement which will protect investors through the establishment of a framework of legally binding rights and obligations.
