HH A VISION CARRIER-ADESINA
African Development Bank President, AKINWUMI ADESINA has described President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA as one of the vision carriers for Africa’s agriculture renaissance and food security.
Dr. ADESINA said during the Feed Africa summit in Senegal, President HICHILEMA spoke from the heart about scaling-up agriculture productivity in Africa.
He says President HICHILEMA’s passion for the sector makes Zambia one of Africa’s carriers of hope for food security.
Dr. ADESINA added that complimentary to the efforts of other partners, AfDB can do a lot together to transform agriculture in Zambia through establishment of special agriculture processing zones.
The AfDB President said this during a high-level bilateral meeting with the Zambian delegation led by Finance and National Planning Minister Dr. SITUMBEKO MUSOKOTWANE at the ongoing Annual Meetings of the African Development Bank in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
In response to a status brief by Dr. MUSOKOTWANE, Dr. ADESINA reiterated calls previously made at other fora that parties to Zambia’s debt restructuring process need to reach a conclusive resolution because, “hope delayed is hope denied.”
The AfDB President also pledged his organization’s support for initiatives aimed at enhancing domestic resource mobilisation, improving tax administration, infrastructure development and support to the private sector.
