Lands, Natural Resources and Environment protection Deputy Minister Davies Mwango says government has simplified the land acquisition process for Zambians living in the Diaspora.
Mr. Mwango says the simplified process will enable Zambians who are living abroad to easily access land at home.
He says government is in the process of revising Land policy adding that government is currently receiving inputs from different stakeholders including government ministries.
Mr. Mwango was speaking on arrival at Bole International airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from Kinshasa Congo where he was attending a climate change meeting.
He adds that a Land task force was established to deal with challenges currently being faced in Land administration in the country.
Mr. Mwango has since encouraged Zambians in Diaspora to apply for Land back home in order to invest in the country
Meanwhile Ambassador Susan Sikaneta says the African Union is grateful to the Zambian government for the 10 acres plot land given for the construction of the new headquarters of the ECOSSOC Secretariat and another piece of land for the construction of the new COMESA headquarters in Lusaka.
She says this will be valuable use of land whose benefits will remain forever and add to the beauty of the city of Lusaka.
This is contained in a statement released to qfm by first secretary for press and tourism at the Zambian embassy in Ethiopia Naomi Chulu.
