PRESIDENT Lungu says Zambia is food-secure and is poised to become the food basket of the region because of good agriculture policies his administration is implementing.
The President said the country will remain food-secure because it is envisaged that two million metric tonnes of maize will be produced this year.
Mr Lungu said the fact the country exports its food to neighbouring countries is evidence that it is food-secure.
“Zambia is food-secure and the Patriotic Front government will ensure that the country becomes a food basket in the region,” he said.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm
