President Edgar Lungu says Trade and Investment Relations between Zambia and Swaziland are cardinal to fostering economic growth for the mutual benefit of our citizens and the SADC region.

The President said this when he read a speech during Swaziland 49thInternational Trade Fair organised under the theme: “Unlocking Trade Opportunities for Economic Growth”.

“My coming here for the third time signifies that our friendship is growing from strength to strength. This is good not only for Zambia and Swaziland, but the Southern Africa Development community (SADC) region and the entire African continent, “ said President Lungu.

“Therefore, the Swazi Trade Fair should be viewed as a celebration which has continued to provide a platform for organizations to interact, forge business partnerships and promote trade and investment in Swaziland and the region, “ he added.

The Swaziland 49thInternational Trade Fair’s theme is befitting and timely because both countries cannot attain economic development without promoting trade, as it stirs economic growth through increased commercial opportunities and investments, thereby reducing poverty among the people, said President Lungu.

Mr. Lungu said, Trade also plays an important role in cementing ties between nations by bringing people together from diverse sectors in a peaceful and mutually beneficial manner to exchange innovative ideas.

“Our friendship is anchored on a rich history pioneered by our fore fathers dating back to pre-colonial days and it is this realisation that Zambia continues to treasure the warm relations shared between our two countries, said President Lungu.

Mr. Lungu said, the 37th Ordinary SADC summit they had recently attended, of heads of state and government whose main objective was to place the region’s Industrialization at the Centre of the SADC development agenda.

He said, the agenda was aimed at deepening and broadening productive capacities and enhancing competitiveness.

“In our effort to stimulate trade, my government is committed to ensuring that we boost trade between our two countries in line with this year’s trade fair theme. As we implement our industrialization agenda through regional value chains, I am confident our trade and investment opportunities will be enhanced even more” said President Lungu.

This is contained in a Statement signed by the President’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations, Amos Chanda.

    • @Spaka…you are asking too complex a question for the simpletons in PF. The net benefit if you want to call it that is two clueless and visionless leaders getting together for a good time ( Mswati and Our not Humble anymore, Edgar)

    • They are just waiting to pick Virgins at tomorrow’s Reed Dance ceremony. na vi HIV vabo.

      Yesterday Kaizer Zulu was fighting for a small girl in a bar in Mbabane. He pulled out a gun as usual.

      What a pathetic low-life douche-bag president.

    • Nonsense,

      We are just waiting for the photos of the reeed daance where even Kaiza has learnt to use knives like Swazis to slash anyone in his way of that pie. Am pretty sure there sleeping with Aerials in waiting. lol

    • Kenyan Judges have saved our taxpayers funds as Lazy Lungu would have collected more air miles plus 3 days working visit in Nairobi.

  1. Create a conducive atmosphere for your own people to grow the economy.
    1) Encourage local productivity by incentivising farmers and other local businesses not overtaxing them.
    2)Actively encourage diaspora engagement in various sectors of the economy. That could pump billions of dollars into the local economy. Other countries successfully to it.
    3.) Tax mining companies proportionately and fairly so that all Zambians benefit from their resources. Avoid setting ZRA on local small businesses,because you bleed them to death.
    4.) Eschew all corrupt practices and embed an anti corruption curriculum in schools so that the scourge is purged before its born
    5.) Establish ‘national interest’ resources so that no government, regardless of party, will touch anyhow , particularly land or…

  2. 5.) Establish ‘national interest’ resources so that no government, regardless of party, will touch anyhow , particularly land or {anything so identified}to aliens . OUR LAND IS BEING SOLD particularly to Chinese ‘investors’ and by the time we wake up, it will be too late.
    That way we may start to see progress in Zambia

  3. Is opening of trade Fair shows,attending inauguration ceremonies and watching naked underage girls considered as Trade?

  4. If the president’s real passion is flying at least the best he could have done was to apply to be a flight attendant. How else can you explain a third world country president having more flight hours than the combined total of president’s of the USA, China and Japan.

  5. Just like Zuma or any other president we invite to our Trade Fair and Agriculture Show, this is just straight forward reciprocal protocol. Nothing worth having donkeys in diaspora write theses about.

  6. We heard ati Jonathan asuke mnkondo ya kamwana kamtoto sure ci president coonse chilibe na nsoni committing adultery and child molestation in the name of cultural sansamcation leaving Dora Siliya languishing with her abusing Katangese.

  7. King Mswati has more leadership experience than the entire UPND management team including HH.
    He became head of state at 16 and has more wealth than the entire UPND mgt team.
