Cross Border Traders Association General Secretary Jacob Makambwe has described the current drought as a drawback  to the country’s aspirations of being a huge trader, under the African Continental Free Trade agreement AfCFTA.

Speaking in an interview with RCV News in Lusaka today, Mr. Makambwa said that the drought has negatively affected the production of food items to be exported within the region.

Mr. Makambwe said that Zambia will also loose out on the much needed foreign revenue owing to a projected low production in the agriculture sector.

“There is need for Zambia to therefore invest in irrigation mechanisms to meet the available market in the region” said Mr. Makambwe.
