Zambia and Denmark have agreed to find ways through which to enhance economic cooperation between the two countries.

Danish Chief of Protocol in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Michael Zilmer-Johns and Zambia’s Ambassador to Sweden Rose Salukatula, have observed that there was minimal trade between the two countries despite enjoying bilateral relations since 1958.

This came to light during a meeting when Ambassador Salukatula travelled to Denmark earlier in the week to present her letters of Credence to Queen Margarethe II in Copenhagen.

Mr. Zilmer-Johns noted that a number of bilateral cooperation arrangements have been agreed between Zambia and Denmark but it was regrettable that trade activities have remained low.

He said it was important that the two countries devised ways of enhancing bilateral trade relations.

“Denmark has competences in agriculture, energy and information technology and our Ministry is ready to help establish linkages between the Zambian Embassy in Stockholm and institution such as the Danish industries, whose members could be interested in exploring Zambia’s investment opportunities,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ambassador Salukatula expressed Zambia’s desire to engage Denmark in exploring trade and investment cooperation opportunities.

Ambassador Salukatula further briefed Zambians about the processes involved under the dual citizenship clause, which was effected in August last year 2017 in line with the amended republican Constitution.

This is contained in a statement made available to the media in Lusaka today by Zambia’s Counsellor at the Swedish Embassy Nicky Shabolyo.

    • You mean private citizens like HH the privatisation crook who has hidden the privatisation loot in the paradise papers… This is the group think mentality I’ve been talking about of UPND sycophants and zealots who are enemies of progress who think everyone is a thief.

    • we dont think, we know that the pf government are thieves. what do you call people that fail to account for donor funds and accept that money has been misappropriated? you seem to be deluded and deficient in your thinking capacity. No one is making anything up! PF have misapporiated funds. this is common knowledge which even an illiterate in shangombo knows. and yet you here continue to refuse. it is like been cheated on by your wife but you continue livin in denial. wake up my friend. if HH stole then you surely think the pf wouldnt have convicted him by now when they brought charges of treason over flimsy and naive issues?
