Relations between Zambia and Sweden have peaked since President Lungu’s re-election. We bring you some high lights in pictures starting from hon Mutati meeting senior diplomats at the embassy of Zambia in Sweden.

We also bring you some news stories that accompanied the high powered visit that saw hon. Mutati meet a number of high ranking Swedish Cabinet Ministers, including Energy Minister Ibrahim Baylan and officials from Business Sweden to mention but a few.
