Embassy of the Republic of Zambia to Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, and The European Union

ZAMBIA’s Ambassador to the Benelux group of countries and the European Union (EU) Mrs Grace Mutale Kabwe has called for a unity of purpose among Zambians in the diaspora, and urged them to seriously consider investing their
resources back home.

During her first meeting with the Zambian community in the Benelux region on Saturday, Ambassador Kabwe said Zambians abroad were an important resource of knowledge and experience required to move the country forward. She urged the diaspora community to always regard themselves as the images, voices, marketing agents, liaisons, ambassadors to local people in the Benelux region and entrepreneurs for Zambia.

The Ambassador said Zambia was in dire need of exposure to the outside world especially through its people living in many countries.
“Zambia is endowed with abundant business opportunities and time is now for you to make use of this and invest back home; your investment at home will help government in creating more jobs for many people and subsequently develop our country. Your positive contribution to Zambia could help alleviate poverty for our people. I would be very happy to see all of you invest your money or some of your savings in your country’s economy especially in long term investments. Zambia needs all of you to develop,” Ambassador Kabwe said.

The Ambassador further underscored the crucial role the Zambian communityabroad could play in national development; and emphasised that their participation in the capital market and facilitating technological transfer would help stimulate industrial development and economic growth in Zambia.
Ambassador Kabwe also updated the Zambian community on a number of issues ranging from consular services offered by the Mission and further urged them to seriously take interest in registering with the Mission, saying that would help continuous update of records for Zambian living in the Benelux region.
And chairperson of the Pamodzi Association of Zambians in Belgium Anthony Chibuye expressed gratitude to the Ambassador for meeting them and assured her of total commitment of the Association towards contributing to the development of Zambia.

Acting Chief Justice implores Zambians to put country's interest first

Chief JusticeACTING Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda has implored Zambians living abroad to put the country’s interest first. The Acting Justice was speaking on Friday at a dinner hosted in her honour at the Zambian residence in Brussels. She said every Zambian carries the country’s flag and therefore it was their duty to promote the country’s image to the international community. Justice Chibesakunda also said it did not matter which institutions they worked for, but it should be borne in mind that Zambia was more important to them and therefore be prioritised, where development was concerned.

Justice Chibesakunda encouraged Zambians in the Diaspora to invest back home and help grow the economy. She said the Zambia today was totally different from the Zambia they knew many years ago as more development had taken place, and emphasised that it was time they invested in their own country.

The Chief Justice further requested Zambians to work with the mission in encouraging potential investors to focus on many investment opportunities in Zambia. And Ambassador Grace Mutale Kabwe expressed gratitude to Justice Chibesakunda and assured her that she would continue to encourage both Zambians and foreign investors to invest in Zambia.

Zambia holds Spectacular Agriculture Show

Every year the Zambia Agricultural and Commercial Show is held in the first

week of August. This is because the Government of the Republic of Zambia has
dedicated first Monday of August to famers and is therefore a public holiday called
FARMERS DAY. During this period, a show is held in the country’s capital City
Lusaka. The annual Show is a culmination of districts and provincial Shows held
across the country.
Zambia is this weekend yet again hosting the 86th Agricultural and Commercial
Show for the year 2012. The theme for this year is "Building on today’s
prosperity".
The Show is being held in the Show Grounds on Great East Road in Lusaka.
Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is expected to officially open the show this
Saturday 04th August, 2012 alongside his counterpart President Michael Sata.
The show is an annual event organised by the Agricultural and Commercial Show
Society of Zambia.
It provides a platform to showcase Zambia’s products to the world, while giving an
opportunity for foreign companies to promote their products in Zambia.
Zambia and Zimbabwe enjoy cordial relations dating back to the days of the
liberation struggle.
In April this year, President Sata officially opened the 53rd edition of the
Zimbabwe International Trade Fair in Bulawayo.
President Mugabe has equated relations between Zambia and Zimbabwe to
Siamese twins saying the two countries were inseparable.
