Zambian govt urges companies to embrace ICT
By Edith Mwale, Lusaka, Zambia
The Zambian government has called on companies in the country to embrace Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to enhance efficiency in service delivery.
Communications and Transport deputy minister Col. Panji Kaunda said at the launch of the National Council for Construction website that technology has simplified the way companies do business.
Kaunda said contractors will now be able to register their companies and renew their certificates through the website as opposed to physically going to the National Council for Construction offices for registration.
“So I call upon all companies in the country to embrace ICTs in order to enhance efficiency in service delivery,” Kaunda said.
The National Council for Constriction is a statutory body set up under the National Council for Construction number Act no. 13 of 2003 with the responsibility of providing for the promotion, development, training and regulation of the construction industry in Zambia.
