Ambassador Kabwe reafirms Zambia's committment to ACP ideals

ZAMBIA’S Ambassador to Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg and the European Union [EU] Mrs Grace Mutale Kabwe has reaffirms Zambia’s commitment to the ideals of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States.
Ambassador Kabwe in her maiden speech to the ACP committee of Ambassadors yesterday, stated that the principles underpinning the family of nations are anchored on commitment to diversity as a source of strength and a shared vision of a common future, democracy, rights-based development; and solidarity in facing the challenges of a world defined by ever-increasing interdependence, rapid and constant evolution.
The Ambassador urged the ACP not to compromise on the quest to include the development pillar in the Economic Partnership Agreements [EPA].

She noted that ACP group of nations was facing severe challenges that threaten its very existence when the Cotonou Agreement expires in nine years time.
“The situation today demands that our group takes measures that will make it survive beyond 2020, i.e. post Cotonou Agreement. This will call for not only solidarity among member states but also the need for alternative thought and measures that strengthen our economy and independence,” Ambassador Kabwe said.
Ambassador Kabwe also observed that the current over-reliance of the group on the European Union for finance, has led to a “culture of dependency” and this has made the partnership ineffective as it is lop-sided.

ZAMBIA: A Beacon of Peace & Business in Africa

InvestZAMBIA is known as the safest and most peaceful country on the Africa Continent and prides itself with its friendly and hospitable people. While Zambia is predominantly a Christian country (about 60 percent), there are also a number of indigenous beliefs as well as religions such as Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism.
Zambia is a constitutional democracy with a multiparty system and regular elections. So far, since independence in 1964, Zambia has had five democratically and peaceful elections and has changed governments through the ballot. The political stability Zambia enjoys has earned it great respect among countries around the world; which refer to it as ‘The Icon of Peace.’
Currently, Zambia’s fortunes have tremendously improved with the economy having grown by an average of over 6 percent driven by a policy environment conducive to foreign direct investment (FDI), strong macro-economic indicators such as a stable currency and low inflation, decades plus of political stability.
Covered by deciduous savannah, small trees, grassy plains and marshland, the north and north-east of the country form a broad, undulating plateau, which slopes away to the south where Zambia’s main river, the Zambezi, forms a natural frontier with neighboring Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe.  Other main rivers are the Kafue, which flows from Zambia’s North-Western highlands and Luangwa, which joins the Zambezi from the North-East. One of the natural wonders of the world, the spectacular Victoria Falls, is the region’s foremost tourist attraction.

Ambassador Kabwe urged the organization to collaborate with Sewerage companies, Engineering Association of Zambia and the University of Zambia in
addressing water related problems, especially in rural areas where clean drinking water was inaccessible.
She urged GWI to familiarize with government policy on water and sanitation if it were to compliment government efforts effectively.
And Ambassador Kabwe has said the Government of Zambia under President Michael Sata had scaled up efforts and recognised the importance of prioritizing actions to confront HIV/AIDS.
Ambassador Kabwe said this when International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF] manager for International Advocacy Eef Wuyts paid a courtesy call on her yesterday afternoon.
She called for the development and strengthening across all sectors of policies and programmes aimed at addressing HIV/AIDS and the scaling up towards sustainable universal access to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support, with a particular focus on addressing the needs of the populations most at risk.
The International Planned Parenthood Federation is a global Non-Governmental Organisation with the broad aims of promoting sexual and reproductive health, and advocating the right of individuals to make their own choices in family planning.
Member Associations such as Planned Parenthood Association of Zambia [PPAZ] provide non-profit family planning services, sexual health and abuse prevention training and education.
