THE First Energy Icon Corporation (FIECORP) says collaboration between the energy and mining industry is vital towards accelerating development as the two sectors were interdependent.
FIERCOP Director Samson Muumba says there was need for stakeholders in the two sectors to continually discuss issues affecting the two national economic boosters industries.
In an interview with Millennium Radio News at the recently held Zambia Mining and Energy Conference (ZIMEC), Mr Muumba said the two sectors needed to access how best they could harness the growth opportunities available to push them forward.
He said energy remains a vital aspect in the smooth operations of the mining sector and that most development in the sector requires massive energy provision.
