State House Special Assistant for projects Monitoring and Implementation Lucky Mulusa says Southern province has more developmental projects taking place compared to other provinces in the country.
Speaking when he addressed government heads in Choma, Mr Mulusa said Southern province was leading other provinces in various infrastructure developments being spearheaded by the government.
He stressed that Southern province is the most advanced rural province in infrastructure development.
However, Mr Mulusa expressed concern with the slow pace at which some development projects are being executed in the province.
And speaking earlier at the meeting Southern Province Permanent Secretary Sibanze Simuchoba implored government to intervene in the delayed opening of a modern market and international bus station in Livingstone.
Mr Simuchoba said the opening of the two facilities will greatly benefit the people of Livingstone and the country as a whole.
