SADC bottlenecks hinder trade

Zambian Communication and Transport Minister Kapembwa Simbao says SADC member states need to address bottlenecks of non-tariff barriers to facilitate smooth flow of trade in the region. And Mr Simbao says climate has become part and parcel of national development plans which calls for more investment to mitigate its effects. He says Zambia and Zimbabwe are facing one of the worst effects of climate change which has seen the rapid decrease of water levels in Lake Kariba. Mr Simbao says the rapid decrease in water levels in Lake Kariba has negatively affected national development plans. He was speaking in Livingstone on Friday when he officially opened the meeting of the SADC Committee of Ministers responsible for Transport and Meteorology.
