THE second session of the joint permanent commission (JPC) between Zambia and Saudi Arabia is scheduled to start in Lusaka today.
The three-day meeting will be held in line with the general agreement on economic, trade, investment, technical, cultural, youth and sport.
The agreement was signed on February 9, 2010 to enhance economic and trade relations between the two countries, for their mutual benefit.
This is contained in a statement issued yesterday by Ministry of Foreign Affairs public relations officer Dorcas Chileshe.
She said the second JPC meeting will give the two countries an opportunity to take stock of current bilateral co-operation across various sectors and explore new areas of collaboration.
Ms Chileshe said the first session of the JPC was held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in March, 2016.
