Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Dorcas Chileshe has clarified that the trip to China by eleven Zambian Government Ministers was fully sponsored by the Chinese government.
Mrs Chileshe said the trip was organised and fully sponsored by the Chinese government in a bid to help improve or initiate developmental projects in various sectors of the Zambian economy.
A delegation of 11 Zambian Ministers arrived in China yesterday to attend a 10-day developmental seminar.
The delegation, comprising the 10 Provincial Ministers and National Planning and Development Minister Lucky Mulusa are in that country, at the invitation of the Chinese Government, to share experiences and learn best practices that can boost development in all the 10 provinces.
The Ministers will also explore investment opportunities in various social and economic sectors, across the breadth of the country.
