Speaking at the event, Guest of Honour and Chililabombwe Member of Parliament, Hon. Paul C. Kabuswe, MP, who is also Minister of Mines and Minerals Development, said that in order for Zambia’s struggling economy to be revived, the New Dawn Government will concentrate more on programmes and projects that will have a significant impact on the lives of the people, hence, making smart judgments while working with little resources is key to a prosperous transformation.

He said the New Dawn Government has identified developing more effective industrialisation strategies as one of the many essential methods for unlocking social and economic progress of the country by emphasizing on industrial development in specific industries and sectors where there is latent comparative advantage, such as the availability of raw materials.

And the Zambia Federation of Employers Representative Future Muzungaire, who is also Lubambe’s Human Resources Manager commended the New Dawn Government for launching the Public Private Dialogue Forum (PPDF) with the aim of accelerating economic growth and job creation.

Mr. Muzungaire said that the Federation strongly believes that through this forum, a number of issues will be discussed regarding public private partnerships in investment opportunities.

Meanwhile, Zambia Congress of Trade Unions Representative Sifuniso Nyumbu appealed to the Government to address the escalating cost of living in the country.

This year’s commemoration was held under the theme: Accelerating Socio - Economic Transformation through Sustainable and Decent Job creation Amidst COVID -19.”
