Zimbabwe and China continue to strengthen economic relations through exchange programmes, with the two countries using a virtual platform to share notes on State-Owned Enterprise reforms this Monday.
The Zim-China Economic Reform and Transformation Training Cooperation Programme is an extension of the cordial relations that exist between the two countries dating back to the days of the liberation struggle.
The training programme is coming at an opportune time, with Zimbabwe having launched a new economic blue print, the National Development Strategy One which is set to come with enormous opportunities.
Deputy Chief Secretary in the Office of the President and Cabinet, Ambassador Nicholas Kitikiti says the ultimate objective is to bring efficiency and effective service delivery within State Owned Enterprises.
“This workshop is very critical in such a way that it points sustainable development factors which are material to creating economic development as well the impartation of useful knowledge cannot be over emphasised,” he said.
Chairman of the Zim-China Economic Reform Programme, Mr Jiao Xueli weighed in saying Zimbabwe will benefit from the Chinese experience whose economy grew at an average rate of 9.5% between 1978 and 2019.
He said: “We believe this training will offer Zimbabwe practical and valuable experiences and lessons in terms of macroeconomic policies, sectoral strategies and specific mechanisms for industrial development.” The Zim-China economic Reform programme is expected to enhance and sharpen Zimbabwe’s competences in public sector management towards attaining an upper middle-income economy by 2030.
