Harare - Sisterly relationships between Tanzania and Zimbabwe continue to grow as the two countries on Wednesday signed five Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen the ties between the two nations.

Zimbabwean Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Sibusiso Moyo met and his Tanzanian counterpart, Palamagamba Kabudi, in Harare where they signed five MoUs on diplomatic consultations; economic, industry and trade co-operation; cooperation in the field of tourism; the promotion of small to medium enterprises development and on the promotion of the women, gender equality and community.

The five MoUs came to life as a result of the meeting and agreements between Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Tanzanian President John Magufuli’s for the two countries to work together towards economic development.

Moyo said his ministry was committed to make sure President Magufuli and Mnangagwa’s wish was fulfilled.

“It is against this background of true friendship that we should endeavour to build mutually beneficial economic cooperation that our two heads of state and government envisaged when they met in May 2019 during his Excellency President Magufuli’s official visit to Zimbabwe.

“We are, therefore, called upon to deliver on their vision, henceforth our deliberations must focus on the delivery of tangible results which benefit our peoples,“ Moyo said.

Kabudi also emphasised the importance of working together to better SADC economies, and encouraged his Zimbabwean counterpart to put all efforts in making sure the MoUs are not just on paper.

“The success of this session is determined by the implementation of these agreements that we have signed today. I therefore wish to encourage both my country and our Zimbabwean brothers to work hard in hand in making sure these agreements are not just on paper.

“We are going to establish a joint follow up mechanism that will be led by our permanent secretaries to monitor timely the implementation of the areas we have agreed today to move in the right direction and hopefully we will meet again to review the progress of what we have agreed today,” Kabudi said.
