Govt. urges Cuba to continue development projects in Zambia
Havana, Cuba, May 18th, ZANIS — Foreign Affairs Minister Effron Lungu has called on Cuba to continue implementing the various projects in Zambia.
Dr Lungu said he was aware that Labiofam, a Cuban firm specialized in the production of various products including animal vaccines was already working closely with the Veterinary department at the University of Zambia.
He said the Patriotic Front government will look at possibilities of enhancing the already existing relationship.
ZANIS reports from Cuba that Dr Lungu was speaking when he visited Labiofam, one of the largest manufacturer of various products in Cuba’s capital of Havana.
Dr Lungu has since urged Cuba to continue working together with the Zambian government and revive the already existing projects in the country.
He also appealed to Cuba to offer scholarships to Zambians so that they can learn more from Cuba in the field of veterinary.
Earlier, Labiofam Commercialising Enterprise General Director Pablo Garcia said his organisation was not only willing to provide service but also to train Zambians and build a market that can not only be used by the local people but also other countries.
He said his organisation had a variety of animal vaccines or different animal species.
