Foreign Affairs and International Trade acting minister Amon Murirwa is leading the Zimbabwe’s delegation to Tuesday’s Extraordinary Sadc council of ministers meeting in Maputo Mozambique.
The bloc’s ministers will meet to consider the progress on the recruitment of the next Sadc Executive Secretary and Deputy Executive Secretary, update on the Covid-19 situation in the region, regional integration and continental and international co-operation issues.
The ministers will also prepare for the Sadc Extraordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government on Wednesday. The ministers will also deliberate on disaster risk management response and the status and implementation of previous Councils and Summits, including the review of the Sadc’s institutional arrangements.
Foreign Affairs and International Trade spokesperson Constance Chemwayi said Murwira will also participate in the Sadc Business Forum being organised by Mozambique from June 22 to 23.
“Zimbabwe, through ZimTrade, will be showcasing the countries trade and investment opportunities as well as seeking new business markets and partnership in the region,” Chemwayi said.
“Zimbabwe’s effective participation in the above mentioned meetings is key to the realisation of the country’s foreign policy objectives, particularly relating to the region’s development and integration agenda.”
