HARARE, April 8 — Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa arrived in Harare International Airport Saturday morning, after his five-day state visit to China.
Before leaving China, Mnangagwa wrote on his Facebook page to tell Zimbabweans that a lot of achievements were made from the state visit.
“I conclude my first state visit outside of Africa, an historic visit which will help bring further crucial momentum to our economy,” he said.
Mnangagwa said he had held “many fruitful discussions with political and business leaders in China, including President Xi Jinping, and secured a host of deals which will make a real difference to the lives of Zimbabweans.”
“They will focus on road, rail, air and dam construction projects…” he said.
Numerous agreements were also signed by the two countries to advance areas of economic cooperation, skills development, education and other facets of the economy, he added.
Apart from the China trip, Mnangagwa has been to Switzerland for the World Economic Forum, Ethiopia and Rwanda for African Union summits and to several countries in the Southern African Development Community region since taking over from former president Robert Mugabe last November.
