“It is key that you as our main stakeholders in the dissemination of news are part of the North West Expo because we need to not only show people who will be part of the Expo but also with the nation at large for you are very essential,

“We have a lot to showcase and have an increased number of investors in the province, we have to unveil the mining, tourism, agriculture sectors and in turn have value addition”, he said

Mr Mubukwanu told journalists that they had to be in contact with the Expo for information so as to report well on all the fundamentals that would make the future of province attainable.

The provincial minister said apart from the province being connected to the rest of Zambia, it was also important that for the hidden treasures be unveiled.

“The Expo which is coming to our province for the first time to run from August 18th to 24 will add us to the list of provinces that have had Expos but note that no one is in competition except making the significance of their province”, said Mr Mubukwanu.

And North West Expo coordinator Christopher Bwalya told journalists that the Expo was for everyone in the province without considering what level of operations a person was but involvement was essential.
