Zambia's determined efforts at permanent political and economic re-orientation away from Rhodesia and towards East Africa are an important geographical effect of the continuing situation in central Africa. The presence of a hostile regime in Rhodesia has caused Zambia, with the close cooperation of Tanzania, to formulate and put into action plans for modem transport links with East Africa. Work on the first of these new links, an oil pipeline from Dar es Salaam to Bwana Mkubwa on the Copperbelt, is now nearing completion.
