Zambians should not be running out of food- Chikane

Economy Zambians should not be running out of food- Chikane

South Africa’s High Commissioner to Zambia has said Zambians should not be running out of food because Zambia had conducive climatic conditions for growing a variety of both food and cash crops.

Mr. Chikane observed that Zambia was endowed with abundant natural resources and had potential mining and agricultural investors.

Mr. Chikane was speaking when he officiated at the awards presentation at ongoing Copperbelt Mining, Agriculture and Commercial show dubbed “productivity in adversity”.

He said the current economic meltdown was an opportunity for Africa to go back to the drawing board and redesign her development plan.

Moses Chikane said there was need for Africa to devise how best the continent can tackle the economic problem.

Mr.Chikane commended all the exhibitors for their excellent display for both business people and the general public.

He has since appealed to government to help train and empower people in agriculture as a way of eliminating poverty and ensuring the proper functioning of the economy.

The overall winner of the show was Sandrik Mining and Construction while Zambia State Insurance Corporation got the best interpretation in conformity to the theme award.

The best new exhibitor award went to Scan Limited, who also received the best stand design award.
