” We have set targets that we should not leave any sector underdeveloped in line with the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP) of not leaving anyone behind. As we develop these sectors, we are aware of the needs of our people and that is why the PF Government is keen to develop all sectors,” he said.
“We want to ensure that the railway sector, aviation industry and the telecommunication sectors are well developed. You will appreciate that this government has done a lot in improving these important sectors.”
Hon Kafwaya said with the reintroduction of the Zambia Airways, it will result in quality service provision in the aviation sector.

He indicated that it is undeniable fact that the PF Government has done tremendously well in terms of improving the road network by constructing new and rehabilitating roads.
