UK Gives Zambia 9.1m Pounds for Border Post

By Mark Ziligone

Government says the recent release of 9.1 million pounds by the United Kingdom for works at the Nakonde One Stop border post will help actualise Zambia’s plan to become a transport and logistics hub.

Transport and Logistics Minister FRANK TAYALI says the initiative will not only foster smooth trade with neighbouring Tanzania but also in enhancing Zambia’s role as a regional transit hub.

Mr. TAYALI says Zambia’s infrastructure development does not only provide services to the country but also play key roles in offering transit support to neighboring countries.

Mr. TAYALI was speaking when British High Commissioner to Zambia NICHOLAS WOOLLEY called on him at his office in Lusaka.

And, Mr. WOLLEY reiterated the UK’s commitment to supporting infrastructure development to facilitate trade between Zambia and its neighbouring countries.

He emphasized that the establishment of the one-stop border post at Nakonde will significantly reduce transit times, particularly the current six-hour journey between Zambia and Tanzania.
