CANBERRA: Zambia’s High Commissioner to Australia George Zulu says government is negotiating with the Australian states on the possibility of relaxing rules to allow Zambian goods to enter that country. Mr. Zulu says Australia has stringent import restrictions which have limited Zambian agriculture produce from being exported there.
He has told ZNBC News in Melbourne, Australia that talks on the matter are ongoing and a decision will be made soon. Mr. Zulu has appealed to Zambian farmers to prepare themselves for the opportunity to export products to Australia but stressed that the produce must meet international standards. He also said Vice President Inonge Wina’s impending visit to that country this week is significant as it will further strengthen the ties between the two countries.
