Zimbabwe’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Frederick Musiiwa Makamure Shava said that this is an important step towards strengthening bilateral relations.
“Several milestones have already been achieved, all aimed at deepening our relations…a clear indication of our collective commitment to a shared vision driven by a desire of the two countries to work together for the betterment of our citizens,” he said.
On the current Rwanda-Zimbabwe trade and investment conference, he said that Zimbabwe is open for business and it also designated special economic zones which are geographical and commodity-based as a way of encouraging foreign investment.
Rwanda’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Vincent Biruta said that the connection between “our people” has continued to grow due to joint works in fields of education, trade and investment, tourism, defence, and transport, among others.
