General News Vice President Inonge Wina praises Eastern Province’s huge food basket

Vice President Inonge Wina says government regards Eastern Province as an important agricultural production region as it contributes significantly to the national food basket.

Mrs Wina encouraged the people of Eastern Province to continue working hard especially in the area of agriculture and promised government’s continued support.

She has since called for a robust programme aimed at replanting trees in the region.

  2. Eastern and Southern Province are the major producers of food in Zambia. It has always been like this but Southern tops the list as they produce more beef and maize. Eastern is produces groundnuts, maize, cotton, beans, dried vegetables etc.
