The Agricultural and Commercial Society of Zambia has cancelled the 2020 Agricultural and Commercial Show due to the prevailing global pandemic Corona virus.
Society President Cosmas Michello said COVID-19 pandemic has led to the introduction of public health measures which has adversely affected routine preparations
Mr Michello said this has made it impossible to host Zambia’s most prestigious Agricultural and Commercial Show this year.
He said this year’s Show was slated for the 29th July to 3rd August under the theme: “Innovation Through Technology”.
“As ACSZ, we found it prudent to cancel the premiere Show as a way of following the public health regulations issued by the Government through the Ministry of Health,” he said.
Mr Michello said the show brings thousands of participants from communities, businesses fraternity and foreign delegates.
“The Society on 12th May, 2020 joined other Organisations in contributing towards the fight against pandemic by donating COVID-19 related Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)’s through our line Ministry, Ministry of Agriculture for use by Extension Agricultural Officers,” he said.
