Agri goods to Saudi Arabia in the pipeline

The Fisheries and livestock Minister Kampamba Chewe made mention during an Interview in Lusaka that the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between Government and Saudi Arabia will soon be in effect.

The Minister added that buyers from Saudi Arabia would be invited to Zambia to begin negotiations with farmers in terms of pricing of products once Cabinet approved the document detailing to deal.

“Government was only creating a market linkage and providing security for farmers who would be exporting the products under the deal, therefore be more proactive as farmers, ” stated Chewe.

Among the goods which are to be exported to Saudi Arabia include goats, beef and honey.

Meanwhile, under the Saudi Arabia deal first agreed between the two governments in 2016, Zambia is expected to export one million goats monthly.

Three abattoirs were selected for use under the deal during the signing of the MoU.
