Reference

Cluster approach unites organizations of the regions. Educational institutions, state services, industrial companies and the private sector are given one communication platform to implement regional projects including training highly qualified staff for the countries’ economies. The first cluster in South Africa with the center in Zambia is interesting because Zambia is the only country in the region boarding on 8 countries and traditionally realizing cluster approach due to strategically important geographical position.

Leading Zambian universities are positive about joining efforts and having a constructive dialogue. Authorities of the University of Zambia and Sunningdale have expressed their readiness to join the Regional cluster.
