Putin Sends Russian Minister to Zimbabwe

Russian Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr Sergey Lavrov will visit Zimbabwe early next month in what is expected to be yet another major statement that the Southern African country is open for business.

The visit by one of Russia’s most powerful man was confirmed by the Russian Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr Sergeyi Bhakarov in Harare today.

Mr Lavorov last visited Zimbabwe in 2014 and took part in the commissioning of the US$4 billion platinum project which is expected to start operations next month.

Exploration and geological works in the area situated along the Great Dyke have already been completed.

Mr Lavrov’s anticipated visit comes at a time Zimbabwe is on a major offensive to woo foreign direct investments (FDIs) and strengthening and deepening already existing bilateral and multilateral ties globally.

Many potential investors in the mining and other sectors are also flocking into the country to seek opportunities on the back of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s regional tours and his recent attendance of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
