Zambia, officially the Republic of Zambia, is a landlocked
country in Southern Africa. The capital city is Lusaka, in the
south-central part of Zambia. The population is concentrated mainly
around Lusaka in the south and the Copperbelt Province to the
northwest, the core economic hubs of the country. Northern
Rhodesia was created in 1911 from territory administered by the British
South Africa Company, becoming an official British protectorate in
1924, and achieving independence as Zambia in 1964.
In 2010, the World Bank named Zambia one of the world's fastest economically reformed countries.
The first stamps of independent Zambia were issued on 24 October 1964.
They consisted of a set of three commemoratives. On the same day, a set
of 14 definitives was issued, with depictions of various professions
and scenes. [R2]
