EXPO North West Zambia 2019 Coordinator Has called on Traditional Leaders to Prepare Adequately

Chavuma 20 May 2019 ZANIS…….Expo North west Zambia 2019 coordinator, Christopher Bwalya has called on traditional leaders to prepare  adequetly for the expo by taking stock of  investment wealth in their chiefdoms.

Mr. Bwalya said traditional leaders in the region need to know what  resources are in their chiefdoms in order for them to compile attractive  investment portfolios.

He said chiefs are key custodians of land and should therefore, take the lead in ensuring that their respective territories are opened up for investment through the expo.

Mr. Bwalya said this during a special district development coordinating committee meeting in Chavuma today.

He said it is high time the province begins to harness and exploit its investment potential and the expo is best way of doing it.

“We need to stop preaching about the potential which this province has and start talking about how we should exploit this potential in order to bring development to this region,” Mr. Bwalya said. 

He urged the district development coordinating committee immediately form an all inclusive sub committee to provide guidance on how the area will prepare for the expo.

Officiating at the event, Northwestern province permanent secretary, Willies Mangimela said the expo should be community driven in order to succeed.

Mr Mangimela and his team  have been going round all districts in the province sensitizing stakeholders about the forthcoming provincial exposition scheduled for August 18 to 24, this year under the theme, “unveiling the hidden treasures”.
