In her remarks, Senior Chief Chikumbu said traditional leaders are ready to work cordially with government in tourism and other projects.
On Monday, President Lazarus Chakwera presided over the launch of the plan; saying the sector contributes to the country’s economic growth by generating direct investment and significant export earnings among others.
