Copperbelt Province needs 12 million Kwacha to successfully host the 2019 expo slated for June.
Copperbelt Province Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe is optimistic that the money will be met as organisers have received massive support from both the corporate world and other well-wishers.
And Mr. Nundwe has declared Copperbelt province ready to host the event.
The Permanent Secretary said this when he called on ZNBC Director General Richard Mwanza at his office in Lusaka.
And Mr. Mwanza said the national broadcaster will continue working with the Copperbelt province to ensure that the expo is highlighted.
He said the national broadcaster has the right equipment and manpower and broadcasts in 7 local languages which will be an advantage for the province to partner with the institution during the expo.
