President Hakainde Hichilema writes below…
The 635 Million Kwacha Agriculture investment initiative that has just been launched between the European Union (European Investment Bank) and ZANACO, is yet again a milestone in our quest for job creation but more so a confirmation of our economic diplomacy which we have been talking about.
This Initiative will benefit alot of small, medium enterprises mainly engaged in the Agriculture sector as it will improve farmers’ accessibility to affordable financing. This will in turn lead to job creation.
Once more we are grateful to EIB and ZANACO for this joint venture as this is what we have been talking about and in order to have more of such support, we will continue with our economic diplomacy.
Jobs, business opportunities, education and quality health care services are coming.
Zambia is open for business through joint ventures.
God bless our country.
President of the Republic of Zambia
