The President of Zambia Hakainde Hichilema has met the European Delegation as he continues to create good relations with the European countries.
He took to social media to update the citizens on what the meeting was all about.
“This afternoon we held a meeting with the European External Action Service (EEAS) of the European Union Delegation at State House.
The delegation was led by EEAS Managing Director for Africa Ms Rita Laranjhina, who stated that it was proud of our Country’s continued peace and security and further stated that our vision for economic growth is indeed important.
During the meeting, we emphasised that we were elected on the premise of delivering economic development, freedoms and upholding of democracy and that we are working towards the achievement of these. We also informed them that vices such as corruption, are being fought through the established institutions.
We stated that we remain committed to ensuring peace and unity for all and that currently our plan is to ensure a stable economy and good governance.
This is because a society that is just and full of potential, can only thrive when there is peace and unity as embedded in the democratic values.
In fostering economic diplomacy, trade and investment, we will ensure that our relationship with the European Union and other cooperating partners is even stronger as this will eventually lead to tangible results.
We are confident that together, we shall make Zambia a safe, healthy and food secure country whose youths will be contributing to economic development because youth empowerment programmes, are being launched soon.
Among the EEAS delegation was His Excellency, Jack Jankowsi, Head of EU Delegation to Zambia, Mrs Sandra Kramer – International Partnerships (INTPA) Director for Africa, Mr Alessandro Mariani – EEAS Head of Division, Mr Bruno Hanses – EU Delegation Head of Political and Public Information, Mr Arnaud Borchard – EU Delegation Head of Cooperation and Ms Namambo Delot who is EU Delegation Press Information Officer.
Fellow citizens. We are in this together and YES, we shall make Zambia a better country.
May God Bless our Country.
President of the Republic of Zambia,” he posted.
