Diaspora policy gets attention

THE Ministry of Foreign Affairs yesterday presented its 2016 quarterly report to President Lungu with emphasis on the Diaspora Policy and professionalisation of the Foreign Service.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba led his permanent secretary Chalwe Lombe and directors in briefing the President on the progress his ministry has made in implementing its programmes.
Mr Kalaba told President Lungu that once approved, the Diaspora Policy would enable Zambians living abroad to fully participate in the affairs back home.
He informed President Lungu that the Foreign Service Bill is aimed at making the foreign service a professional career and make embassies more effective in economic diplomacy.
And special assistant to the President for press and public relations Amos Chanda told journalists that President Lungu wants greater dialogue with not only ministers but technocrats as well in various ministries to enhance development.
