The Zambian government said on Wednesday that it was ready to host African Union (AU) meetings slated for this week.

Zambia will host the 41st Session of the Executive Council of the AU and the 4th AU mid-year coordination meeting from July 14 to 17 in Lusaka, the country’s capital.

About 13 African presidents as well as about 3,500 other officials are expected to attend the meetings.

Stanley Kakubo, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, said an Inter-Ministerial Committee established to oversee preparations for the meetings have worked around the clock to ensure that the meetings were a success.

He said in a ministerial statement that the government was grateful for the opportunity given to host the summit, saying the country will use the opportunity to promote the country’s hospitality and tourism sector.

He said the hosting of the summit will bring benefits to various sectors of society, including the private sector.

The summit will be held under the theme, “Building Resilience in Nutrition on the African Continent: Accelerate the Human Capital, Social and Economic Development.” Enditem
