No communique was issued, but there is little doubt that both are very concerned about speeding up the construction of the proposed Botswana-Zambia (Botzam) highway which is to link the two countries. The road is to be built from Francistown in Botswana to Livingstone in Zambia and will be 400 miles long. At the Zambesi river, which marks the border between the two countries, two terminals are to be constructed, one on each bank of the river.

The new highway will, however, be an all-weather road.
