Health and agriculture remains constrained with human resource
Government has revealed that the health and agricultural sector remains highly constrained with human resource.
This is despite the fact that the sectors are vital in economic and national development.
Speaking on Friday when he graced the swearing in of 52 Peace Corps volunteers at the American ambassador’s residence, Health Minister, Kapembwa Simbao observed that the nation’s aqua agricultural sector and that of the health greatly lack expertise.
Mr Simbao who’s speech was read by director of technical support services, Dr.Elizabeth Chimeza, acknowledged the extensive support that the American government has been giving to Zambia in these areas through their peace corps project.
He said that over 34 thousand beneficiaries have been impacted through the Peace Corps project.
The newly sworn in American ambassador to Zambia, Mark Storella challenged the volunteers to respect the Zambian culture and not interfere in their politics.
