Government has appealed to Indian to take advantage of Zambia’s high grade soya beans for its edible oil production.
Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Permanent Secretary for International Relations, ISABELLE LEMBA says India can now look to Zambia for the importation of agricultural produce such as soya beans and avocado which are of high quality.
Speaking in New Delhi, during the third Foreign Office Consultation, Ms LEMBA noted the growing trade imbalance between the two countries with India exporting more than Zambia.
And India’s Joint Secretary of East and Southern Africa, PUNEET KUNDAL said India will explore the prospect of importing soya beans from Zambia.
Mr. KUNDAL said this could be a cheaper source than the current situation where the country is importing pigeon peas from other African countries.
Meanwhile, Ms. LEMBA has appealed to the Indian Government to consider giving Zambian students in India industrial attachment visas to enable them to have industrial experience after their training in various fields.
This is according to a statement issued to ZNBC News by First Secretary for Press and Public Relations at the Zambia’s High Commission in India , BENNIE MUNDANDO.
