Technology and Science Minister Hon. Felix Mutati has revealed a significant increase in youth training opportunities through the Constituency Development Funds (CDF), with over 62,000 youths sponsored for skills development across various trade schools nationwide.

Speaking at a sideline event during the China-Zambia High Quality Development Forum, inaugurated by President Hakainde Hichilema, Hon.
