The Zambian government should seek more exchange programs with China to boost the country’s economic development, a business expert said on Wednesday.
Chingola Chamber of Commerce Trade and Industry president Fred Musonda said learning from China’s various economic programs is important for Zambia to attain the much needed economic growth that will benefit Zambian citizens.
Citing the Canton Fair, Musonda said the fair is an eye opener for Zambian private sector to learn the technical and innovation skills.
“Our focus as a country should be on long term planning by emulating the Chinese long term strategy. Government should get strong on exchange programs with the Chinese for extended economic growth,” he said.
Musonda said the private sector should also be part of stakeholders participating in trade expos in China which will change the perspective of doing business. Enditem
