Former International Momentary Fund (IMF) Resident Representative to Zambia, Kenneth Meyers, says the future of Zambia looks bright despite the challenges of the debt crisis. 

Mr. Meyers said this when he paid a courtesy call on Ambassador Chibamba Kanyama in Washington, D.C. ahead of their visit to Zambia to celebrate the Lubuto Library network and reopening of the expanded Lubuto Model Library and Training Center in Lusaka’s Garden Township.

Mr. Meyers who served as IMF Country Representative to Zambia from 1998 to 2001, noted the strides made by the Government demonstrate its commitment to addressing key issues.

“The future of Zambia is not fighting with the debt crisis but finding what makes Zambia more productive, and despite the challenges of the debt crisis, the economic outlook of the country is looking good,” said Mr. Meyers.

Meanwhile, Ambassador Kanyama said the journey of transformation begins with the  education and empowerment of the girl child.

“This is the support that the country aspires to get and any support that goes towards children especially the girl child allows them to have access to quality formal education that can expose them in society,” said Mr. Kanyama.

This is according to a statement availed to RCV News in Lusaka today, by First Secretary Press and Public Relations at the Embassy of the Republic of Zambia in Washington, D.C Charles Tembo.
