The Business Council Covid-19 Emergency Taskforce (BCCET) was created to bring together leaders from the private business sector of Zambia and coordinate efforts to mitigate the financial, economic and social effects of Covid-19.

After witnessing the devastating consequences of the disease around the world. The BCCET believes it is our corporate social responsibility to stand united against the devastating tide of Covid-19 and engage to protect Zambian lives, businesses and households.

Our Vision

Our aim is to help businesses and households navigate through economic distress in the wake of the COVID pandemic and post-pandemic period to safeguard the employment of its citizens. Our responsibilities as a committee are: to seek donations; materials; provide technical expertise; and facilitate donations in kind that will assist our fight against Covid-19.
