President of the Republic of Zambia
Met with Jean-Pierre Lacroix to discuss matters of mutual interest between #Zambia & UN Peacekeeping. Reaffirmed Zambia’s commitment to peacekeeping efforts, as we recognise that #peace is a prerequisite for economic development. 🇿🇲 🇺🇳
It was a joy to meet beneficiaries of #CDF including cooperatives engaged in tailoring, poultry business & making peanut butter. That’s what happens when citizens partake in decisions that affect their lives. Now we should go a step further & help #OurPeople with #MarketAccess .🇿🇲
With the help of cooperating partners German Embassy ZAM, USAID, World Bank & many others, our govt has shown political will towards service delivery through a bottom-up approach. This, has empowered communities, to address their different & specific needs. 🇿🇲 #Decentralisation
