Minister of Defence Davies Chama says Zambia is poised for economic development owing to the ambitious development programme that the government has embarked on, according to ZNBC.
Chama says President Edgar Lungu has put in place a massive development programme that will see Zambia become a viable economic hub in Africa.
Chama said this in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia when he addressed diplomatic staff and Zambians living in Ethiopia at a dinner organized at the Residence for Zambia’s Ambassador to Ethiopia Susan Sikaneta.
He said government was putting in mechanisms to ensure that Agriculture becomes the backbone of the country’s economy.
Chama further disclosed that defence forces were also beginning to contribute to the National Development through Agriculture.
