HARARE (Xinhua) — Zimbabwe’s agribusinesses should take advantage of the full diplomatic ties between Zimbabwe and the United Arab Emirates to increase agricultural exports to the Middle East country, an official said Thursday.

Zimbabwean Agriculture Minister Anxious Masuka made the remark during the inaugural UAE-Zimbabwe food and agribusiness virtual forum.

“Now that Zimbabwe and the UAE have established full diplomatic relations, we look forward to the expansion of our trade relations,” Masuka said.

He said Zimbabwe is keen to explore trade opportunities for its agricultural sector in the UAE.

Zimbabwe’s drive to grow agricultural exports comes at a time when the country has launched a strategy for the transformation of the agriculture and food systems, which is aimed at increasing agricultural output to 8.2 billion U.S. dollars and growing exports to 4.2 billion dollars by 2025.

    WATCH THIS SPACE !!!!!!!!

    There are those powerful, well heeled and tribally connected Zimbabweans who will thrive in the “Wheeler Dealer” environment and corridor that is now attracting them openly.

    An interesting and incomplete “Gold Smuggling” case is right there in the mix.

    Sadly, the Rape of Zimbabwe (by the “Liberators”) will continue for another twenty five years
