Vice President Joice Mujuru said Zimbabwe is satisfied with results of the multi-faceted cooperation and partnership with Iran which has seen the Asian country transferring technology in health and agriculture to Zimbabwe.

Iran and Zimbabwe are collaborating well in the field of agriculture and health as seen by the tractor assembling plant established in the country recently as well as the plan by the Asian country to build two hospitals in the next 3 years.


Last month, Iranian President Mr. Mahmoud Ahmedinejad came to Zimbabwe and officially opened the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair.

On the economic downturn which his country is currently experiencing, Ambassador Koukakis said measures are being taken to rectify the situation.

Ambassador Koukakis is retiring from the Diplomatic service after 35 years and has served in Zimbabwe for two and half years. Greece is currently experiencing an economic meltdown which has left the European nation in crisis.
