CHINGOLA, Zambia Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Zambia's strengthened bilateral relations with China is a "blessing" as the African nation is poised to benefit from the Asian nation's economic development, a youth leader said.
Don Mungulube, a youth chairman of the governing Patriotic Front (PF) on the Copperbelt Province said China's long term planning is bearing fruits.
"What we have seen and learnt from the Chinese here is amazing," he said.
Mungulube said in an interview with Xinhua that Zambian youths will have to utilize the knowledge that has been acquired from China.
Mungulube had attended a seminar in Beijing on rural empowerment and poverty reduction.
"Long term planning has been key for China, most lectures we have here are touching on that," he said.
Mungulube said the Chinese have kept on improving on their technology which has paid off for the Asian country through development.
On acquisition of skills, Mungulube said Zambian youths are eager to learn rural poverty reduction strategies in China.
He called on Zambia to strengthen cooperation with China in order to boost socio-economic development that will transform the southern African country.
