President Hakainde Hichilema has left for United Nations for the General Assembly that will be held in New York, United States of America.
President Hichilema said that he will ensure that all engagements and meetings discuss matters of interest to the people of Zambia.
He said the focus areas during these engagements will be on economic development, jobs, business opportunities, education and quality health care services for the people of Zambia.
“Just like we promised before taking office, we will ensure prudent management of public resources and I have therefore travelled with a lean team that is composed of Minister of Finance Dr Situmbeko Musokotwane and minister of foreign affairs Stanley Kakubo respectively,” he said.
President Hichilema said that they will share Zambia’s development plan with the wider global community and present a case for that child in Chipulukusu, Chief Kambombo, Chama, Mugubudu or indeed Sikongo.
The head of state said the focus is turning around the Country’s economy and working round the clock to ensure that this comes to fruition
