China to aid Zambia construct 1st livestock vaccine production laboratory

Plans to establish Zambia’s first-ever livestock vaccine production laboratory with the help of the Chinese government have reached an advanced stage, a senior official has said.

During his visit to China in March this year, President Edgar Lungu signed a number of agreements with the Chinese government, and among them was an agreement for the establishment of a livestock vaccine production laboratory.

Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock Permanent Secretary David Shamulenge told Xinhua in an interview that the two countries are still vigorously pursuing the program of establishing the country’s first-ever laboratory for production of livestock vaccines.

He said a team of Chinese experts visited Zambia last month to finalize modalities on the establishment of the laboratory and that the government is in the process of finding a piece of land where the laboratory will be constructed.

The official added that a team of experts from Zambia is expected to visit China to check on livestock vaccine production factories in that country and to finalize modalities on the plan.
