The Zambian government has confirmed that the upcoming Heroes Day, Unity Day and Farmers’ Day public holidays would be observed on July 6 and 7, 2020, and August 3, 2020, respectively, despite the cancellation of this year’s Zambia International Trade Fair and Zambia Agricultural and Commercial Show due to Covid-19.
The aforementioned announcement, made by Zambian Secretary to the Cabinet, Simon Miti, states that "the three days will be observed as public holidays because they are gazetted under the Public Holidays Act Cap 272 of the Laws of Zambia. The two events are premier investment shows which attract attendance of foreign heads of state, as well as local and international investors.".
