Berlin, August 28, 2016 - The Zambian Embassy was on Sunday, August, 28, 2016 among over 50 embassies based in Berlin that successfully participated at this years’ German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) International Open Day.
Every year, the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) opens its doors to inform the German public about the development-political cooperation with its partner countries, and Zambia was among other Embassies that had an opportunity to showcase its diverse tourism destinations and potential investment opportunities. This years’ event was officiated by Parliamentary State Secretary of BMZ, Mr. Thomas Silberhorn.
The Zambian stand laid out numerous creative display of pamphlets and brochures containing information on tourism and investments, and Zambia’s artifacts pictorial images of its cultural. A lot of visitors took interest to visit our stand with most them particularly interested in getting more information about Livingstone and the Victoria Falls. It was no surprise that we ran out of maps.
Earlier during the proceedings, the BMZ Parliamentary State Secretary, Mr. Thomas Silberhorn toured all the stands of participating embassies. The Embassy Charge D’affairs, Ms. Theresa Kimena was present to welcome the Parliamentary State Secretary at the Zambian stand and the two exchanged a few words on the existing good cooperation between Germany and Zambia
