ECONOMIST CALLS FOR REDUCED PRICES OF MAJOR COMMODITIES IN ZAMBIA.

Zambia Economist Lubinda Habazoka says in order to reduce the rising cost of living for ordinary Zambians, government needs to work on reducing the cost of major commodities in the country.

Mr. Habazoka said government should also work on increasing the value of the Zambian kwacha to make imported goods cheaper and affordable.

He said if the high cost of living is not worked on quickly it will affect the health of people and increase poverty levels in the country.

So if those inputs are reduced then what we are going to achieve is low prices within the republic, when food prices increase it makes food unaffordable and it causes malnutrition among children and increases poverty levels”, he said.
