THE Zambian Government’s resolve to upgrade 8000 km road network throughout the country will boost tourism and other economic activities in Zambia, visiting Washington Senator Pam Roach has said.
Ms Roach, who has been Washington Senator since 1990, said the upgrading of the road network would be beneficial to the tourism and other sectors of the economy as most roads were currently in poor state.
She was speaking in Livingstone on Thursday afternoon when she paid a courtesy call on Southern Province Permanent Secretary Chileshe Mulenga.
“When you leave Lusaka to visit other parts of Zambia, roads are bumpy hence Government’s determination to upgrade the road network will be beneficial to tourists and transporters,” she said.
She said most Americans were interested in visiting the Victoria Falls and exploring tourism activities such as walking safaris, canoeing and bungee jumping among others.
