ZAMBIA’S ambassador to Cyprus Frank Mutubila has urged investors in that country to take advantage of the vast investment opportunities available in Zambia in areas such as mining, tourism, agriculture, manufacturing and infrastructure development.
Mr Mutubila said Zambia stands ready to partner with Cyprus in strengthening economic ties, especially in the area of tourism.
Speaking when he presented the letters of credence to H.E Mr Nicos Anastasiades, President of the Republic of Cyprus, at the Presidential Palace in Nicosia, the Capital City, Mr Mutubila said Zambia enjoys a long friendly relationship with Cyprus.
This is according to a statement released to the Sunday Mail.
He applauded the Cypriot government for continued creation of the training opportunities to Zambians.
Mr Mutubila also called for more scholarships not only for Zambians in Cyprus but those in Zambia as well.
“I would like to thank the President and the Cypriot government for the warm welcome and brotherly hospitality accorded to me and my delegation,” he said.
The ambassador also congratulated that country’s President and his party, the Centre-Right Democratic Rally Party, for winning the Feb. 2013 Presidential Elections.
The Non-Resident High Commissioner to Cyprus was accompanied by the First Secretary for Political and Administration, Mr Clifford H Lambe, and Honorary Consul in Cyprus for Zambia Costas N. Lefkaritis, who is based in Limassol.
And President Anastasiades assured Mr Mutubila of his government’s assistance in the execution of his duties.
He said his Government has embarked on the Reform Programme of the Public Service as he wants it to be more transparent, accountable, efficient and effective in service delivery to the people of Cyprus.
Meanwhile, Mr Mutubila has applauded President Sata’s budget speech to parliament on September 20 describing it as inspiring.
The speech outlines continued economic growth of almost 7 percent under the Patriotic Front (PF) Government and an unprecedented implementation of massive infrastructure projects not seen since Zambia’s independence.
Mr Mutubila said some Italian investors have already started participating in some of these projects.
