This morning we took time to visit Ihub Information and Communication Technology company here in Nairobi, Kenya.
The firm is being run by young people and we were encouraged by their resolve to design solutions using ICT.
Back home and as a way of ensuring that this is realised, we established a Ministry of Science and Technology which is tasked to ensure that innovativeness is rewarded and supported.
Science and technology is one tool which should be used to create jobs and business opportunities.
Additionally, we undertook a visit to Maramba Tea Company and appreciated their entire production process. We are optimistic that with such knowledge exchange, we will help revive home tea companies as we are creating a conducive business environment.
With these partnerships, we are confident that Zambia is going forward and will be turning into an economic epicentre. It is our duty to unlock any bottlenecks that may hinder every business opportunity and this we will do.
Zambia is getting better and indeed will be better.
President of the Republic of Zambia.
