He also advised cooperating partners to also make recommendations and submissions for the 2023 national budget, so that the budgetary process is consultative so that resources are correctly allocated.

And rotary club international president Jennifer Jones called for strengthened partnership between Zambia and the Rotary club especially in the areas of elimination of malaria, maternal and child health and sanitation and hygiene.
