Final report of ZACA campaign for removal of customs duty on newsprint

In May 2011 ZACA was awarded a sum of three thousand seven hundred and fifty United States Dollars (US $3750) by Consumer International (CI) under the Access to knowledge programme to undertake a campaign that would lead to the removal of 5% customs duty on imported newsprint in Zambia with the assumption that the price of newspapers would correspondingly reduce thereby making newspapers affordable to the majority of consumers. This in turn would increase access to knowledge as more people read newspapers.
