Ministry of Finance Public Relations Officer Chileshe Kandeta has disclosed that the European Union (EU)- Zambia relations are cordial and both parties are focused on achieving greater development.

In a Statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka yesterday, Mr. Kandeta said this is contrary to assertions by some sections of society.

Mr. Kandeta said the two partners have agreed that the EU support to Zambia will be channelled through project support via implementation of the 11th European Development Fund Programme once signed.

He said under the programme, the EU has pledged Euro 484 Million of support to Zambia for the period 2014 to 2020.

Mr. Kandeta said the 11th EDF Programme will focus on energy, agriculture and governance.
He said in the energy sector, the proposed support is expected to compliment the resource requirements for rehabilitation of the Kariba Dam, and the promotion of technology transfer through solar power projects, as an alternative household energy source.

Mr. Kandeta said in the agriculture sector, Zambia will benefit through programs targeted at strengthening the provision of nutrition, animal vaccine production, fisheries and conservation farming.

He added that with respect to governance, the EU plans to offer financial support through Sector Budget Support to the Public Financial Management Programme.

  1. Stu.pid Bemba Ars.se Kandeta, DONT treat us like kids. You have just confirmed that the EU will not give your GRZ that money directly because they DONT TRUST your Govt and Chikwanda in particular.
    YET the EU had TRUST in RB and LPM – Tell us why they DONT Trust Sata’N Govt? It is quite Obvious – your PF Govt is likely to steal that money too and Europeans WONT take that RISK!
