FINANCE MINISTER FELIX MUTATI has arrived in Brussels Belgium for the 2017 World Customs Organisation Global Transit Conference.

Mr. Mutati, who is accompanied to Belgium by Zambia Revenue Authority [ZRA] Commissioner General Kingsley Chanda was met on arrival this afternoon by ZAMBIA’S AMBASSADOR TO BELGIUM, GRACE MUTALE KABWE.

Minister Mutati will tomorrow deliver a keynote address at the opening ceremony of the World Customs Organisation Global Transit Conference in the Belgian Capital.

The conference has been organized to launch new global customs transit guidelines and to examine tariff and non-tariff options available for passage to the business community. The initiative is expected to facilitate the reduction of the cost of cross-border business.

Addressing the receiving party from the Zambia Embassy, Mr. Mutati said the country seeks faster and more efficient cross-border trading through improvement of her transit potential and elimination of unnecessary and adverse customs burdens, “in order to contribute to the increase in trade volumes; to facilitate better inter-connectedness of the regional and global markets; and to fully integrate Zambia in the global supply chain.”

“At operational level, we need to move diligently in transforming the vision of President Edgar Lungu to create jobs through country-wide developments by ensuring that we not only eliminate impediments but also smoothen all processes that will enhance trade facilitation and reduce the cost of cross boarder business for our people,” said the Minister.

    Upnd entourage in South Africa were surprised to learn that eff and Da are two different parties. They thought that since malema has lost so many elections like the prisoner he was the right person to seek an audience with. And reports reaching me says mmusi is very disappointed with upnd for dumping him . According to DA upnd is a baby to da because it funded hh during 2015/16 elections and they can’t explain to them how they will repay the money.

    UPND and HH are making PF sycophant sick. They have nothing to think about other than hallucinating UPND & HH even where it’s not worth. Even when you have caged him he remains your biggest threat to you ever. You’re little-frightened men stop it.

    Ovalhead, where does your blog fit into the world customs organization conference. I must have missed the salient point can you please elaborate.
    As i posted b4 the more you try to denigrate the opposition publicly, pipo (international community) will question why and then ask themselves what are the accusers trying to hide. If you constantly beat a bad child eventually the punishment means nothing to him. Can you see the parallel.

    The Finance Minister should reduce on his trips abroad…His PS and the ZRA Commissioner General are capable of doing the job he’s doing in Belgium honestly with due respect to him…Mr Mutati should spend more time in the office at home working like Mr ABC used to do in the recent past…
