HARARE (Zimbabwe), October 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russia and Zimbabwe have set up a business council, which will be led by Roman Trotsenko, Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said on Sunday.
“The setting up by our countries of a business council for cooperation of our business communities will become a major stimulus for the development of trade and economic relations,” the minister said. He also said that on Saturday the decision was reached to relaunch the intergovernmental commission for trade-economic and scientific-technical cooperation.
“We have formed an intergovernmental commission, or to be more exact we confirmed that it resumes its activity, in order to build more comfortable relations between our countries and ensure a more comfortable climate for our companies in Zimbabwe and Zimbabwean companies in Russia,” Manturov added.
According to him, Russian companies are ready to offer their services in all directions. This can involve cooperation in the sphere of mining industry, metallurgy, aircraft building, construction of infrastructure and power engineering facilities, transportation, storage and procession of energy resources, etc. These are far from all spheres of cooperation, the minister stressed.
“I believe the nature of relations developing between our countries towards strategic partnership, as well as the readiness of Zimbabwean leadership to create maximally favorable environment for Russian business testify to long-term prospects in the whole set of relations,” he summed up.
