The provincial administration wants to take over the printing press in Chipata, which has been lying idle.
Eastern Province Permanent Secretary Chanda Kasolo says that he has already communicated to the director in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services over the matter.
Mr. Kasolo says that his office wants to operationalize the printing press to create about 100 direct jobs for youths in the region.
He explained that one team of the youths will be involved in printing while another group will be involved in marketing.
Mr. Kasolo says that the provincial administration will also ensure that district commissioners are involved in getting all printing business works from their districts.
