China to Build Zimbabwe's New Parliament

Lovemore Chikova — Zimbabwe and China have signed an agreement worth $46 million as part of the first tranche of funds for the construction of the new Parliament Building in Mt Hampden. The agreement was signed by Macro Economic Planning and Investment Promotion Minister here during a meeting on the follow-up to the implementation of various projects being carried out by the Chinese.

This came as Chinese Foreign Minister Mr Wang Yi told the same meeting that Zimbabwe was among six countries in Africa with which the Asian economic giant had signed framework agreements for production capacity cooperation.

The meeting that was attended by more than 100 government ministers from African countries, was a follow-up to the Johannesburg summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (Focac) held last year.
