The provincial administration says that it will do all it can to ensure that the former Daily Farm in Chipata is used for government projects.
Provincial Permanent Secretary, Chanda Kasolo, says that this includes engaging the businessman, under whose hands the farm is.
He also says that Secretary to the Cabinet, Rowland Msiska has been engaged to help ensure that the land is repossessed.
The land is earmarked for projects under the Zambia National Service presidential initiative to put up a milling company in Chipata, while Zamcapital is also ready to set up facilities.
Mr. Kasolo reiterated that among other projects, Zamcapital will put up a college for animal husbandry and an animal stock feed factory.
He explained that the CEEC, the Citizen Economic Empowerment Commission in conjunction with the Africa Development Bank is interested in putting up industrial clusters for youths in Chipata.
Mr. Kasolo says that these projects are expected to create about 2,000 job opportunities for youths in the province.
