ZAMBIA’s Ambassador to the Benelux group of countries and the EU Grace Mutale Kabwe calls for a unity of purpose among Zambians in the diaspora

ZAMBIA’s Ambassador to the Benelux group of countries and the European Union (EU) Grace Mutale Kabwe has called for a unity of purpose among Zambians in the diaspora, and urged them to seriously consider investing their resources back home.

During her first meeting with the Zambian community in the Benelux region on Saturday, Ambassador Kabwe said Zambians abroad were an important resource of knowledge and experience required to move the country forward.
She has urged the diaspora community to always regard themselves as the images, voices, marketing agents, liaisons, ambassadors to local people in the Benelux region and entrepreneurs for Zambia.
The Ambassador says Zambia was in dire need of exposure to the outside world especially through its people living in many countries.
she explained that Zambia is endowed with abundant business opportunities and time is now for the Zambians in the diaspora to make use of this and invest back home as this will help government in creating more jobs for many people and subsequently develop the country.

The Ambassador has further underscored the crucial role the Zambian community abroad could play in national development and emphasized that their participation in the capital market and facilitating technological transfer would help stimulate industrial development and economic growth in Zambia.
Ambassador Kabwe also  updated the Zambian community on a number of issues ranging from consular services offered by the Mission and further urged them to seriously take interest in registering with the Mission, saying that would help continuous update of records for Zambian living in the Benelux region.
And chairperson of the Pamodzi Association of Zambians in Belgium Anthony Chibuye has expressed gratitude to the Ambassador for meeting them and assured her of total commitment of the Association towards contributing to the development of Zambia.
