“The business community in Chipata requested the President, they wanted to discuss with him the vision of the party and Government regarding the policies in agriculture and fertiliser distribution, the issues that are affecting the agriculture industry, which is predominantly the backbone of the economy in Eastern Province,” Mr Chanda said.
He said President Lungu has agreed to meet the business community.
