ZAMBIANS should take advantage of India's expertise in the textiles industry to develop the local textile sector, Indian High commissioner to Zambia Ashok Kumar has said.
Mr Kumar said India was ready to offer knowledge and expertise to revamp Zambia's textile industry.
He was speaking in Livingstone on Monday afternoon when he paid a courtesy call on Southern Province Minister Josephine Limata.
"We are more than ready to help Zambia revamp the textile industry in order for the sector to contribute to social economic development of the country", Mr Kumar said.
He said his country was ready to help Zambia implement projects aimed at improving people's livelihood, especially as the country prepares to co-host the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) general assembly in August this year.
Mr Kumar said Zambia should take advantage of the event to market wildlife, economic stability and peace to the international community.
He said he was confident that the delegates to the UNWTO summit would find Zambia as one of the best tourist destinations.
Speaking during the same occasion, Ms Limata said the Patriotic Front (PF) Government would continue to harness the cordial bilateral relations that existed between the two countries.
