GOVERNMENT has been commended for its decision to ban the use of plastic carrier bags and other plastic-related materials in the country.
The ban follows the sighing into law of the Environmental Management Regulations Statutory Instrument (SI) number 65 of 2018.
Kabwe Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) president Elizabeth Ngongola Reinke said the ban of plastic bags in business operations should, however, come with user-friendly replacements.
Ms Reinke said in Kabwe that there could be women in the country who had ideas of what would be the replacement for plastic bags.
And the KCCI boss said people in Kabwe looked forward to a district with more skills and training centres.
Mrs Reinke said such centres should not only be in town but enhance the already existing skills development centres.
“We wish to see a Kabwe with more skills and training centres not just in the town centres but also to enhance the already existing skills development centres,” said Mrs Reinke.
