Mr. Kambwili says President Lungu’s trip to China is to woe investors that will help create jobs in various sectors of the economy.
He says China is Zambia and Africa’s biggest market.
Mr. Kambwili says locally, Zambia, continues to benefit immensely from China’s investment in mines, schools, hospitals, roads, sports stadia and other social and economic infrastructure across the country.

He has called on all well meaning Zambians to come forward and offer suggestions how to develop the country in a sincere and civil manner.
