Ms. Etambuyu Anamela Gundersen, the Permanent Secretary for International Relations and Cooperation, recently convened a meeting with Her Excellency Ms. Khadija Iddrisu, the High Commissioner of the Republic of Ghana accredited to Zambia, at Charter House in Lusaka.

The discussions centered on enhancing cooperation between the two nations, with a focus on expediting the implementation of the 10 Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) signed during President Hakainde Hichilema’s State Visit to Ghana in July 2023.

Both parties committed to concluding all outstanding MoUs, covering various sectors such as trade, tourism, youth empowerment, science, and technology.
