Luanda — The Zambian minister of Transport, Yaluma Christopher Bwalya, Thursday in Luanda expressed satisfaction with the work done by the Government of Angola in repairing the Benguela Railway (CFB) that will soon reach his country and boost its development.
Yaluma Bwalya was speaking at the Luanda "4 de Fevereiro" International Airport short after arriving to attend the first Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) Conference on the Lobito Development Corridor set for February 15 in central Benguela province.
At the head of a delegation, the Zambian official admitted that the Angolan Government has made a great effort to put to work the CFB and reach Zambia this year.
Yaluma Bwalya added that the matters set for discussion in Benguela are of interest to his Government as the functioning of the Lobito Corridor will boost his country's development, by relaunching such sectors as production of copper, agriculture and creation of joint-
ventures between businesses from both sides.
He said as well that his country is in expectation to see the CFB link Zambia and DR Congo and thus enable the development of the region.
