The Zambian Minister of Mines, Energy and Water Development, Mr Christopher Bwalya Yaluma, is in the country on a two-day tour of key mining institutions.
Nii Osah Mills, Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, with Ms Barbara Asamoah, his Deputy Minister, and other top officials of the Lands Ministry, received Mr Yaluma and his delegation, welcomed their Zambian counterparts and assure them of their cooperation.
Nii Osah said the existing relations between the two countries would continue to grow in all sectors.
Mr Yaluma said it was his intention to study the regulatory framework of the Mining Sector and get acquainted with the achievements of Ghanaian mining.
“We have precious stones, which we have exploited for so many years, but we haven’t yet recorded significant benefits, and at the same time we have allowed our minerals to be exported in the raw form without value addition,” he said.
Zambia, he said, “has to develop to the status of other mining countries, and it cannot be done in isolation, hence the interaction with Ghana”.
The Zambian and Ghanaian delegation visited the Minerals Commission, and also paid a courtesy visit on the President at the Flag Staff house.
