This he said during his opening remarks to the Online Seminar hosted by the Communist Party of China and the Chitepo School of Ideology at the ZANU PF Headquarters.
The seminar covered a range of topics among them ‘Strengthen the overall leadership and discipline of ZANU PF and CPC, Promote economic development and poverty elimination among others. It is one of so many that the will be conducted as the covid19 pandemic rages on.
“We are quite encouraged by the positive developments in Zimbabwe under the able leadership of H.E President Mnangagwa and ZANU PF, exchange rates are stabilising, inflation is falling, new mining investments are coming in, food self-sufficiency is predicted for this farming season and much stronger growth is expected for 2021,” the Ambassador said.
“I commend your judicious policy choices. More importantly, I applaud your determination to develop in a Zimbabwean way, not relying on the governance models of anyone else, although there are sanctions compelling you to do otherwise.
“Our two parties have a very proud tradition of good communication and coordination. Over the years, the heart-to-heart engagement has played a leading role in our state-to-state relations and cooperation. Despite the constraints of the pandemic, we are still able to sit together for a lively discussion. This is another example of our close Party-to-Party friendship. I am confident we will keep up our excellent communication, learn from each other’s experience and provide genuine support for each other in delivering better governance. ZANU PF is a leading revolutionary party in the region. The CPC is the world’s largest political party. With our forces combined, we will be able to change the world for the better.”
