Mr. Munsha says the committee will assist local contractors to have access to contracts and thus compete with contractors outside the district.
He said the committee has decided to and agreed on the payments to their coffer, by other contractors from outside the district who will be accessing projects in Chipili District.
The CDBA said the committee will charge contractors from other districts a sum of One Hundred Kwacha (K100).
Mr. Munsha also appealed to all Government Departments to give projects to the District Business Association regardless of the source of money rather than waiting for Constituency Development Funds (CDF) only.
