President HH meets Scottish first minister

It was an honour to deliver a keynote speech here in Edinburgh, Scotland, at the prestigious Panmure House, the home of the father of modern economics Adam Smith.

We reiterated our message on the importance of education as the best investment and the best equalizer in any society. We encouraged partnerships between Scotland and Zambia, particularly in education, health, technology, renewable energy, and private sector skills development.

In our engagement with the Scottish First Minister, Humza Yousaf, we called for enhanced trade and investment support from the Scottish government to encourage joint ventures between our citizens and international investors to create long-lasting partnerships.

We will continue on our mission of economic diplomacy to encourage investment, stabilize our country's financial position, and create more opportunities for our people.

We have since concluded our engagements in Scotland and left for France.
