Eastern Province Permanent Secretary calls for practical translation of policy measures outlined in the 2013 national budget.

Government has urged members of the Provincial Development Coordinating Committee, PDCC in Eastern Province to practically translate policy measures put in next year’s national budget.
The 2013 budget has highlighted fundamental policy measures in various sectors of Zambia’s economy which are aimed at addressing the many challenges facing the people of Zambia.
Permanent Secretary Hlobotha Nkunika says that implementing these policies will go a long way in changing the lives of the people.
Mr. Nkunika stated that changing people’s lives will only come about when technocrats practically translate these policy measures into tangible actions that would ultimately benefit the people.
He also advised the committee members to avoid the business as usual tendency of approaching developmental matters.
The permanent secretary pointed out that critical thinking and innovation is required to transform Zambia into a developed country.
Mr. Nkunika was speaking during the official opening of the third quarter PDCC meeting being held in Chipata.
