Item 2# Negotiations have reached an advanced stage to relocate Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport from Ndola's Ndeke area to Chichele plantation. Kamfinsa MP Moses Chishimba has opposed the proposed tempering with Chichele Forest Reserve.

Item 3# Government will introduce a National Airline before the end of this year. Transport Minster Christopher Yaluma has appointed a cross government team of officials to spearhead the setting up of the national flag carrier. The team will submit a report to government on the issue next month.
