Government says it will continue to roll out electronic platforms across the country to ensure accountability and transparency in public service delivery.

Finance Minister Bwalya Ng’andu says Financial Inclusion remains low in the country hence the need for all stakeholders to get involved.

Dr. Ng’andu says therefore it is important for financial institutions to partner with government in order to increase financial inclusion.

He says Digital services also help financial institutions to easily interact with clients and meet the diverse needs of customers.

Dr. Ng’andu said this in a speech read on his behalf by Ministry of Finance Permanent Secretary Economic Affairs Mukuli Chikuba at the 2019 Zambia Institute of Banking and Finance Annual Conference.

Meanwhile, Zambia Institute of Banking and Finance Services President Moses Shuko said Financial service providers should pass on the benefits that comes with digitization to their clients.

And Bankers Association of Zambia Chairperson Kola Adeleke said the banking sector is cognizant of the linkage between Financial strength and prosperity at individual level.

He said it is therefore the associations aspiration to develop innovative products and solutions that will drive the country towards achieving the targets of a green economy.

  1. How can a country with majority broke unemployed people expect financial inclusion? This man is thick! My white wife was right about him. I think my white wife knows how these pf thugs operate. My white wife told me that pf would rig elections inn2011 and it happened. I would rather listen to my wife than attend your silly national prayer. As an advisor am also advised by my wife. I love her white soul

    • I am surprised BAZ president is a foreigner. Can we address this and remove him at the next election. Zambia it’s high time we started guarding our institutions from foreign infiltration. Let’s not just be inclusive for the sake of being inclusive we have national interests to protect. I would be damned to find a Zambian leading an important association in Nigeria worse more west Africa. Makes us Zambians look impotent in the eyes of these foreigners.

  4. HH was right that this Ng’andu would be swallowed by the general mismanagement of PF. He is doing nothing about the Snake Eater’s aimless travels day in day out since he wormed his way to power.
