Head of Mission at the Zambian Embassy in Turkey, MR. BWALYA NONDO, has repeated that if harnessed, seasonal fruits can contribute to poverty reduction and job creation.
Mr. NONDO, said that they are encouraging Turkish agro-processing companies to invest in Zambia to help revive defunct companies like Mwinilunga Pineapple Company and to exploit the many tropical fruits to create wealth.
He observed that foreign investors can take advantage of the strategic position by exporting their products to the entire Southern African Region.
