THE Patriotic Front (PF) is a practical Government which will continue to work and match the expectations of the people, Vice-President Guy Scott has said.
Dr Scott said in Parliament yesterday that the PF Government was determined to drive the economy in a positive direction.
He said in order to forge the development agenda, the Government had invited the private sector to come on board.
"We are a practical Government and we want to meet the demands of our people, that is why we have invited the private sector to help drive the economy," Dr Scott said during the question-and-answer session.
He said there were many less privileged Zambians and that had motivated the Government to work even harder to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor.
Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda hailed the opposition bench in the House for supporting the Re-denomination of Currency Bill which passed second reading.
Mr Chikwanda said the Bill, once formulated into law, would assist the Bank of Zambia to regulate disbursement of the revised currency effectively.
"I want to thank Members of Parliament for supporting this Bill. Without it becoming law, it would be difficult for the Bank of Zambia to regulate the new currency.
"I want to assure the House and the nation that all the concerns raised by the Committee on Estimates will be taken into serious consideration," Mr Chikwanda said.
