The British government through its newly appointed High Commissioner to Zambia has praised the government of the Southern African country for its continuous support of the fight against the climate changes and their consequences.
Nicholas Woolley, who received a post of a British envoy to Zambia in July and has recently presented his credentials to President Edgar Lungu, said such words during his speech to the Parliament.
The diplomat emphasised that London fully supported such a socio-political course and the authorities’ commitment to minimalize the effect of natural disasters on people.
“The UK will also work side-by-side with Zambia as it seeks to achieve its goal of becoming a prosperous middle-income country by 2030. We will support your efforts for greater economic development and prosperity, through regional trade facilitation, inclusive growth, and job creation strategies and generating a pipeline of opportunities for both commercial and institutional investors,” Woolley stated.
He also noted that the UK would help Zambia improve access to finance for small and medium-sized businesses and further create the opportunities to attract larger investment funds.
