HH, Tshisekedi hold talks in Kinshasa, agree to resolve trade barriers

General News HH, Tshisekedi hold talks in Kinshasa, agree to resolve trade barriers

President Hakainde Hichilema and his Congolese counterpart Félix Tshisekedi held talks in Kinshasa on Tuesday.

President Hichilema who is visiting the Congo DR said the bilateral talks were very fruitful.

Mr. Hichilema said the talks centered around trade and investment and long-standing border issues between the two countries, which the leaders agreed should be resolved harmoniously.

“We also agreed that trade and investment can be enhanced if we normalize our border challenges.”

He added, “This would not only allow both countries to focus on the creation of business opportunities but that such efforts would, in turn, improve livelihoods, health and education for the people of DRC and Zambia.”

President Hichilema expressed Zambia’s willingness to deal with these challenges with determination because the two countries share a common history, values, and cultures, that would be further cemented if these outstanding matters were amicably resolved.

  4. Good start your Excellence. Please put orderliness and appropriate infrastructure to facilitate business at Kasumbalesa Border post.
    Among others insure these are put in place:-
    1. Trade Buildings, Markets or Ware houses with equipped re-fridgerators at minimum fee.
    2. Banking facilities
    3. Joint committee ( DR and Zambia) to facilitate communication and resolve disputes..etc
    4. Well planned road net work and cleaneliness to avoid spread of diseases.
    Sir I see the potential could be ten fold more than what is obtaining currently. I submit………

  5. How do you call a President who has gone on official visit as VASCO DAGAMA. You should realize that state visit was mooted when the two met during UN General Assembly Meeting in New York last month. He is just fulfilling that engagement.

  6. HH is wasting government resources by making these trips, and in the case of Tshekedi this is the 4th time he will be meeting him, 1. at the inauguration 2. At the UN, 3. In Glasgow and now in Kinshasa.

    “HH is wasting government resources by making these trips, and in the case of Tshekedi this is the 4th time he will be meeting him, 1. at the inauguration 2. At the UN, 3. In Glasgow and now in Kinshasa..”

    DRC is the most lucrative neighbour zambia has , the opportunity for Zambian produce is limitless ……….

    There are some place not everything can be discussed………

    Like you can’t start discussing debt arrears at a funeral house…….

    or you can not force your agenda on other countries who have their own business at these meetings ……..

    HEHH is right to pursue this DRC market…….
