INVESTORS and traders should utilise the newly opened Zimbabwean Embassy in Turkey to promote investment that will mutually benefit the two countries, Zimbabwe's Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Ambassador Frederick Shava has said.

In his remarks at the official opening of the country's embassy in Ankara, Turkey yesterday, Ambassador Shava called upon investors to put the new diplomatic station, which started in 2019 but because of the Covid-19 pandemic could not be officially opened, to good use.

As a follow-up to the opening of the embassy, a further agreement of diplomatic and official passports will be signed soon.

The visit by Ambassador Shava's is expected to lay the ground for President Mnangagwa's visit at some stage, either later this year or next year, to deepen relations with Turkey.

Speaking at the same ceremony, Turkish Foreign Affairs Minister Mr. Mevlut Cavusoglu, said Zimbabwe holds a special place for Turkey.

"With the opening of Zimbabwe Embassy in Ankara, it is evident that our relations are growing stronger each day.

"This embassy will further develop links between our business people as well as flourishing education and tourism between our nations," he said.

The Turkish Foreign Minister noted that 13 years ago, there were just ten African embassies, which have since expanded to 37.

"So the increase has been 27 within 13 years, indeed this is a reflection of deepening of relations with Africa," Cavusoglu said.

With the Second Republic's thrust of economic and trade diplomacy, Zimbabwe is seeking to increase its trade with Turkey with both countries of the view that current volumes are too low.
