ZAMBIA’S High Commissioner-Designate to the Republic of South Africa Major General Jackson Miti says he will work towards the implementation of bilateral agreements signed between the two countries.
Gen Miti said it was his priority to ensure that agreements signed between Zambia and South Africa were implemented as a matter of urgency, as this would help promote mutually beneficial trade and investment.
This is contained in a statement issued by First Secretary for Press and Public Relations in Pretoria Naomi Nyawali.
He was speaking in Pretoria, South Africa when he reported as Zambia’s newly appointed High Commissioner to that country with extra accreditation to Lesotho and Madagascar.
Gen Miti said the actualization of Bi-National Commission initiatives were expected to enhance investment, Trade and cooperation, peace security and information exchange.
He said that Zambia would draw lessons from South Africa’s advanced economy in order to achieve goals set out in the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP).
Gen Miti added that he will continue cementing the cordial relations that have existed between the two countries.
He indicated that there was also need to foster sustainable business linkages between Zambian and South African Companies and to promote local content in Trade and investment Initiatives.
The High Commissioner, who was received by Deputy High Commissioner Mr. Maynard Misapa and High Commission members of staff, has since resumed duties whilst waiting to present his credentials to South Africa’s President Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa.
