Minister Of Foreign Affairs HARRY KALABA has urged the African union executive council to finalize the logistics and financing for the relocation of the Economic, Social And Cultural Council Secretariat to Lusaka.
Zambia won a bid to host the ECOSOCC Secretariat in 2016 and was also elected to the peace and Security Council of the African Union.
And Mr. KALABA called for the urgent appointment of an interim ECOSOCC Director who would supervise the preparations of all logistics pertaining to the operations of the interim structure.
He was speaking during the 31st Ordinary Session of the Executive Council in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, today where President EDGAR LUNGU, is expected to attend the Head of States Summit tomorrow.
ECOSOCC is as an advisory organ of the African union to promote the African civil society integration and development agenda of the continent and implementation of programs such as peace, security, social and economic.
