LUSAKA Dec 7 (Reuters) - Zambia plans to re-finance Eurobonds totalling around $2.8 billion that it issued between 2012 and 2015, finance minister Felix Mutati said on Wednesday.

"The strategy for the Eurobonds next year is re-financing. We want to re-finance the Eurobonds and get longer dated bonds at a bit of lower cost so that we minimise our debt," Mutati told reporters. (Reporting by Chris Mfula; Editing by Tiisetso Motsoeneng)
