Govt reaffirms determination to develop the economy

Economy Govt reaffirms determination to develop the economy

Southern province Minister, Joseph Mulyata, says government is working hard to create an environment for increased production necessary for national economic growth.

Mr Mulyata said government is currently increasing the hydro electricity sector’s
capacity to provide electricity to the new mines and other industries as a measure of encouraging productivity in key sectors of the economy.

The minister was speaking in Siavonga yesterday during a conducted tour of the Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation, ZESCO, run Kariba North Bank power station.

He said the move by government to establish another power plant at Itezhi Tezhi will
greatly help the country cope with the increasing demand for electricity by the industries.

Mr Mulyata commended workers at Kariba North Bank power station, which is Zambia’s
second largest power plant, for exhibiting a spirit of hard work and professionalism.

The minister, who inspected ongoing rehabilitation works on underground power
generation equipment, expressed happiness at the progress made so far in the project.

ZESCO engineers informed the minister that the ongoing rehabilitation works are
meant to increase power production capacity and modernize equipment in line with
current trends in the power industry.

They said some equipment had become obsolete and that spares were no longer available on the market, hence the need to catch up with latest technology.
