Minister of Youth and Sports Vincent Mwale says Zambia will host the United Nations conference on landlocked developing countries this year.
Speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka today, Mr. Mwale, who is Acting Chief Government Spokesperson, said the United Nations conference on landlocked developing countries will be held in Livingstone from 2nd to 4th June 2015.
He said the hosting of the international conference was a testimony that Zambia is a prime destination for world conferences.
He noted that Zambia will benefit immensely from the gathering as the conference will help the country realise the much needed foreign exchange.
Mr. Mwale said the hosting of the conference will further help to market the country’s tourism potential and also sell the country as a prime investment destination.
The minister said details of the conference will be given at a later stage.
