Mr Cravella paid a courtesy call on Acting President Joice Mujuru at her Munhumutapa Offices and presented a letter from his President, Dilma Rouseff, on the need to deepen economic ties.

Speaking to journalists after a closed-door meeting with the Acting President, Senator Cravella said there is need to improve economic relations between the two countries especially in agriculture where Brazil is doing well.


“Zimbabwe and Brazil have cordial relations, hence a lot can be done to strengthen ties on the economic front, especially in agriculture,” said Senator Cravella.

Senator Cravella said Zimbabwe can become the hub of the continent through utilising existing technologies from friendly countries and increasing cooperation with countries such as Brazil.

“Zimbabwe can become the hub of Africa through cooperation with friendly nations like Brazil,” added Senator Cravella.

Zimbabwe and Brazil enjoy cordial relations in various spheres.

Early this month, Vice President Mujuru attended the swearing-in ceremony of Brazilian President, Dilma Rouseff.

Brazil and Zimbabwe are both members of the G15 and South-South Cooperation groups.
