This draft review of development trends in the nickel industry- (1980-1988) and prospects for the 1990s was prepared by the ECA/MULPOC/LUSAKA. It is a desk study based on data and information derived from the Central Statistics Office (CSO), the University of Zambia School of Mines, and the Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines (ZCCM). The draft review will be improved as up-to-date statistics concerning the industry are made available. Moreover, comments on this draft review will be sought from the African nickel industry, African governments and other institutions, in order to make the final document as accurate as possible. The final report will eventually be disseminated to all institutions with interest in the African nickel industry. The basic objective of the review is to stimulate actions at various levels (in the nickel industry, governments, researchers, etc.) which could enhance the contribution of the nickel industry towards the economic advancement of the African region.
