Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Minister STANLEY KAKUBO says talks between President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA and his Rwandese counterpart PAUL KAGAME will focus on matters of mutual interest at bilateral, regional, and international levels.

Mr. KAKUBO says the talks will be followed by signing of seven Memoranda of Understanding between Zambia and Rwanda in various sectors which will promote the consolidation of ties between the two countries.

He notes that President KAGAME’s visit is expected to reinforce bilateral relations, and further strengthen partnerships and cooperation at multilateral level with common development aspirations based on mutual benefit for citizens in the two countries.

Mr. KAKUBO adds that President HICHILEMA has continued to emphasize on the need to leverage the opportunities for intra-African trade, investment and tourism.

He says these will ensure the resilience of economies and industries stating that the visit will provide an opportunity to share best practices in areas targeted for progress.

Mr. KAKUBO says government is keen to emulate Rwanda’s success in the field of Information and Communication Technology -ICT- as it pursues universal and affordable Internet coverage for Zambians.
