President Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe has departed the country for Saudi Arabia to attend the Saudi Arabia Africa summit. This visit comes as both countries have agreed to establish embassies in their respective capitals, Harare and Riyadh, with the aim of strengthening economic trade and fostering cooperation.
During his time in Saudi Arabia, President Mnangagwa is scheduled to meet with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. Additionally, he is expected to engage with international leaders to deepen cooperation and discuss the numerous investment opportunities available in Zimbabwe.
Last month, a high-powered delegation from Saudi Arabia, led by special envoy Mr. Adel Ahmed al Jubeir, held discussions with President Mnangagwa at State House. Various bilateral matters, including the upcoming Arab-Africa Summit, were addressed during the meeting.
Accompanying President Mnangagwa on this trip are a delegation of cabinet ministers, including from the Finance and Agriculture ministries.
This visit to Saudi Arabia signifies the ongoing efforts to strengthen ties between the two nations and explore avenues for increased collaboration in various sectors.
