Luapula expo and investment Conference meaningless without investment being realised – Chilangwa.  

Economy Luapula expo and investment Conference meaningless without investment being realised -...

 

Luapula Province Minister Nickson  Chilangwa says although the recently held Luapula expo and investment Conference was successful, its benefits will only be appreciated if its investment goal in the province is actualized.

Mr. Chilangwa says the first ever provincial expo and investment conference in the province is a seed and sawn which will only be realized if all districts work hard and ensure that investors that come actually invest in the province.

ZANIS reports that the Province Minister saidwhen he addressed heads of government departments in Samfya district to thank them for their contribution in the Luapula Expo and Investment Conference which was held recently in the province.

He  has since called on all councils in the area  to identify land and attract investors to develop in various sectors as this is the only way the province will fight poverty.

He said there is no need for people to fear that through investments that coming in the province investors will grab their land but they should embrace investors who want to develop the province.

He said the provincial administration has taken all the necessary steps to ensure that investments that are coming in the province benefit the people.

The Luapula Expo which was held on Wednesday, 26th July to 31st July,  attracted business investment commitments in excess of one billion US Dollars.

To this effect Finance Minister Felix Mutati has predicted that the province will no longer be the poorest Province in Zambia because it is already ahead of some provinces as soon as the business commitments begin to take effect.
