Over Dependency On Mining Has Adversely Affected Zambia’s Economy

The Zambia Union of Financial Institutions and Allied Workers (ZUFIAW) has observed that over dependence on mining as a mainstay of the economy has impacted adversely on other sectors.
Union president Cephus Mukuka has told Qfm news that government needs to apply a policy framework that will revamp other economic sectors.Mr. Mukuka says the country has little benefits from the mining industry as the sector makes minimal contribution to the national budget despite making huge profits.He has therefore implored government to explore and concentrate on other sectors that will be of economic potential to the country.
Mr. Mukuka has also urged government to take calls for more job opportunities seriously saying that the more jobs created the lower the poverty levels will be.
