Zambian president set for SA visit

30 November 2010, 22:28

Cape Town - Energy, mining and agriculture are among key items on the agenda in talks between President Jacob Zuma and his Zambian counterpart, Rupiah Banda.

Banda is set to pay a state visit to South Africa on Thursday and Friday.

The department of international relations and co-operation said in a statement on Tuesday: "President Rupiah Banda's visit takes place within the context of consolidating the African agenda through the enhancing and deepening of the political, economic and social relations between South Africa and Zambia."

Besides discussions on broad issues affecting Africa, and on co-operation at regional level, especially within the SADC, the two men would also discuss "co-operation in the key bilateral priority areas such as economic co-operation, energy, mining, agriculture, health and the environment".

The two heads of state would address a business forum, organised to promote trade and investment between the two countries.

The department said Banda would be accompanied by several ministers and a business delegation, which would participate in the business forum "to explore investment and trade opportunities between the two countries."
