The Republic of Zambia is located in Southern Africa. It shares a border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania, Malawi and Angola. Unlike many of its neighbours, Zambia has managed to avoid civil war and unrest and has earned a reputation for political stability. The last decade has witnessed robust economic growth as a result of its copper industry. However, poverty remains high affecting two-thirds of the population.
