India is looking at increased strengthening of bilateral relations with Zimbabwe.

This was revealed by the Indian Ambassador to Zimbabwe Mr Rungsung Masakui when he paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Energy and Power Development Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo today.

For the past several decades India, an all weather friend to Zimbabwe, has heavily been involved in human capital investment especially technological advancement that has seen it partnering Harare Institute of Technology (HIT) seeking to impart requisite and valuable knowledge to Zimbabwe’s young population.

India established a 5 year $10 billion credit facility for African countries which started in 2015.

However, the facility has been under utilised halfway through its tenure and India is pushing Zimbabwe to make use of this facility to build and improve power generation infrastructure.

Ambassador Masakui also urged Zimbabwe to seriously consider solar energy as climatic conditions in the country favour such projects.

The continuous engagement of the two nations is expected to bear mutually beneficial outcomes as they seek to grow stronger economies.
