The Minister expressed happiness at the set targets and agreed timeframes for the implementation of the agreed areas of cooperation in various sectors.
He said the time frames will enable both Zambia and Mauritius to accelerate the implementation of agreed measures in a coordinated and efficient manner.
Mr. Lungu however stated that there is need to embrace a coordinated approach in the implementation process that provides for continuous review and audit of the cooperation instead of waiting until the next JPC Session.
