THE US government will this year begin the construction of a new Embassy compound in Harare valued at $199 million.

This comes after the Department of State Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) awarded a tender to B.L. Harbert, International of Birmingham, Alabama for the construction work.

The new Embassy will be located on a 16.5-acre site in the Bluff Hill area. The complex will include an office building and associated support facilities.

US ambassador to Zimbabwe, Bruce Wharton, revealed this information in Harare recently.
