IMPLEMENTATION of the mega deals signed between Zimbabwe and China last December is on course with teams from both countries working flat out to ensure their success, China’s top diplomat here has said.
Ambassador Huang Ping said Beijing was also working hard to source funding for the projects worth over $4 billion, that were signed between the two countries during President Xi Jinping’s State visit here in December last year.
He made the remarks after paying a courtesy call on Minister of Policy Co-ordination and Promotion of Socio-Economic Ventures in the President’s Office, Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo at his Munhumutapa offices in Harare yesterday.
“We talked about our good relationship and how to further strengthen this relationship and expand our cooperation,” said Ambassador Huang.
“We focused on how to implement the fruits of the State visit by President Mugabe to China and the recent State visit by President Xi Jinping which was followed by the FOCAC (Forum on China Africa Co-operation).
“Mega deals were signed and witnessed by the two Presidents when President Xi Jinping came to Harare. At FOCAC President Xi Jinping made an announcement that China is going to invest $60 billion in the next three years. So those are the things I think we need to work together to implement.”
