Government’s agriculture endevours buttressed

Agriculture has occupied a top spot on government’s policy and intervention agenda.

Michael Katambo, the Livestock and Fisheries minister said the stance will ensure economic stability and growth.

He said government has strategized to develop a sustainable diversified and competitive agriculture sector in line with the 7th National Development Plan.

Katambo applauded Zambia Catholic University for supporting government’s endevour through the launch of Accelerated Agriculture Initiative Program (AIP) Certificate course in Sustainable Agri-prenuership.

He said government is determined to diversify the economy from being copper dependent, as the country is positioned to become a more prosperous middle income country.

Zambia Catholic University with support from Missio-USA has launched an Agri-prenuership certificate course.

The ZCCB Bishop Director for Education Rt. Rev. Charles Kasonde further said that the program should translate into skills that would multiply fruits, repeated bumper harvest and well managed profit making firms run by the Church.
