We are proceeding to Addis Ababa on Friday, to attend the 35th Ordinary Session of the African Union Assembly. We will deliver our maiden speech as well as give an update on Zambia’s preparedness to host the mid-year Coordination Session in Lusaka. This year’s theme “Building Resilience in Nutrition and Food Security on the African Continent: Strengthen Agriculture, Accelerate Human Capital, Social and Economic Development” aligns perfectly with our own objectives as a country.
We will use this occasion to engage with other institutions and investors that will be willing to partner with us towards our economic revival. As Zambia’s Chief Marketing Officer, we intend to take full advantage of the presence of global leaders present to make a case for our country.
In addition, we will engage with other leaders to discuss peace and security for the continent, as we are aware that without peace and security, we cannot thrive nor have development. This Summit offers an important platform to discuss strategies on containing COVID-19 so that our economies can begin to recover. We look forward to engaging with participants from a cross-section of our continent.
God bless Zambia.
President of the Republic of Zambia
