The Zambian government in conjunction with China’s Jilin University has set up nine farms for village chicken rearing projects in Luanshya, a mining district in the Copperbelt province of Zambia.

Patrick Maipambe, Luanshya District Commissioner, when addressing farmers in the district Thursday, said “this village chicken rearing project is spearheaded by Technology Serve Organization and the University of Zambia in conjunction with the Jilin University of the People’s Republic of China.”

Maipambe said the government of Zambia was committed to diversifying the nation’s economy by putting up deliberate policies that would allow other stakeholders especially Chinese nationals to improve the production of livestock such as village chicken rearing as well as fish farming.
