The Economics Association of Zambia (EAZ) has enhanced its advocacy programmes to help change Zambia’s economic landscape.

EAZ president Lubinda Haabazoka said there was urgent need by all stakeholders to ensure a positive change of Zambia’s economic standing.

He said this was the more reason why EAZ is this year holding the National Economic Summit in Livingstone.

Dr Haabazoka added that the summit was also aimed at disseminating positive information about Zambia’s economy and also to showcase the country’s potential.

He said the role of the association was economic policing and advocacy.

Since the ushering of the new board last year, he said, EAZ has held various engagements with stakeholders including Government, Bank of Zambia and the private sector.

Dr Haabazoka said it was now time for the association to go out and tell the people of Zambia the right message and position about the country’s economic status.

He said this when his entourage paid a courtesy call on Livingstone acting District Commissioner Harriet Kawina.

And Ms Kawina said that Livingstone was privileged to host such a big summit which will attract foreign nationals to discuss matters that border on Zambia’s economy.
