PRIVATE Sector Development Association (PSDA) Chairperson Yusuf Dodia has backed President Edgar Lungu’s recent trips saying they were beneficial as the Head of State was marketing the country on the Global World.
Ms Dodia said yesterday that the President was right to travel for essential engagement with other Heads of State.
He explained that the President was not visiting for the sake of holiday but to put Zambia on an international community.
“The President is currently marketing the country on an international market. The President is not visiting those countries for the sake of the holiday but to put Zambia on the market,” he said.
He said there was need for the politicians to look the Presidential trip on a broader picture.
Mr Dodia said it was unfortunate that some politicians were criticizing President Lungu’s trips since assuming office as the Head of State.
He said the President had the right to meet other Heads of State in other countries as part of marketing Zambia on global world.
Mr Dodia has also appealed to the Government to motivate the investors in order to attract more investment opportunities.
He said investors who were establishing the businesses in the country were looking at the cost of doing business, fuel and electricity which were important to most of the businesses.
