Preparations for the upcoming 2nd Annual International Conference and Exposition of the African Chapter of the World Aquaculture Society (AFRAQ2023), were given a boost last week following signature of the hosting agreement by Zambia’s Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock. This special gesture means the Government of Zambia is fully committed to collaborate with WAS in ensuring smooth organisation of the event through financial commitments, support to the hiring of convention centre, appointment of State Officials to the conference’s National Organising Committee, national promotions, high-level officiation to the event among other roles and commitments.
The hosting agreement was signed by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock, Dr. Anna Songolo in the presence of the Minister, Hon. Makozo Chikoti, also witnessed by other senior officials from the Ministry. From WAS’s side, the President of the African Chapter of WAS co-signed the agreement. Representatives from the Africa Union and Southern Africa Development Community also witnessed this historic occasion.
More and more institutions, companies and organisations continue to express their interest to participate at AFRAQ2023. Zambia, being one of the fastest aquaculture producer countries in Africa, with vibrant aquaculture value chains in action, is undoubtedly the ideal place to be on November 13 to 16th 2023!
