PRESIDENT HICHILEMA MEETS EU COMMISSIONER
We are proud that Zambia remains a great bastion of democracy and peace within our region.
This evening we met with European Union President Ms. Ursula Von der Leyen. The EU has recommitted to a partnership of equals with Africa, and Zambia in particular.
Our collaboration, which will support billions of Euros in investment must reach you, our people. The EU agreed to support our reform agenda, as we discussed areas of cooperation such as renewable energy, public private partnership, and good governance.
We assured President Von der Leyen that their support will be welcomed, particularly as we ensure a zero tolerance approach to corruption within our government. As such, we will continue to work in partnership to make sure that EU investment in Zambia is fully accounted for.
As we take these meetings on the world stage, we are always thinking about how these partnerships will benefit you, our people.
God bless Zambia.
President of the Republic of Zambia
