Vice President Dr Constantino Chiwenga has arrived in Iran to lead Zimbabwe’s delegation at the Iran-Africa International Economic Conference set to commence this afternoon.

Dr Chiwenga was received by Zimbabwean Ambassador to Iran, Bright Kupemba, and Iran’s Minister for Cooperative, Labour and Social Welfare, Solat Mortazavi.

While in Iran, VP Chiwenga is expected to meet Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and extend an investment call to Iranian companies.

“Previously, this conference focused on countries in the Economic Community of West African States, but now it is focusing on the whole of the African continent,” he said.

“The Iranians will showcase what they have and how they can cooperate with African countries in a mutually beneficial cooperation.”

Over 40 African countries are expected to attend the conference.

Iran and Zimbabwe share strong diplomatic ties and are working to grow trade cooperation.

President Raisi visited Zimbabwe last year, resulting in the signing of 12 Memoranda of Understanding.
