Livingstone Chamber cries for incentives

THE Livingstone Chambers of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has asked Government to consider giving more incentives to sectors that have been affected by the Covid-19 outbreak.
Ms Namakau Siyanga said that some sectors such as tourism Industry had been affected as some hotels, lodges and pleasure resorts had off employees.
She said, therefore, that Government should consider giving some incentives to tourism a way of saving them.
Ms Siyanga was speaking when she and PF Southern Province Information and Publicity Secretary Trymore Mweenda featured on Sky FM in Monze.
“As private sector, we must take this opportunity to commend the Government for the measures it has taken on the Covid-19. It only takes a father to think beyond the current situation the country and the whole world has found itself into,” she said.
“We are also of the view that Government must consider giving some incentives to affected sectors such as tourism due Covid-19,” Ms Siyanga said.
And Mr Mweenda said all the measures that Government had put in place to stop the spread of Covid-19 were yielding results.
Mr Mweenda said that it was unfair for anyone to criticize Government over preventive measures implemented so far.
