Japan is seeking ways of improving parliamentary cooperation with Zimbabwe’s parliament while at the same time exploring ways of deepening economic relations.

The process of exploring ways of widening areas of cooperation between the Japanese government and parliament of Zimbabwe came during a courtesy call on speaker of the National Assembly Advocate Jacob Mudenda by the Japanese Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr Toshiyuki Iwado.

Briefing journalists after an hour long closed door meeting, Mr Iwado said there is huge potential of cooperation between the two parliaments while also a number of initiatives can be done on the economic front.

Zimbabwe and Japan enjoy cordial relations with the Asian nation assisting on various agricultural projects across the country focusing more on the livelihoods of communities.

The Parliament of Zimbabwe is also working with different parliaments across the globe with a view to exchange information regarding the championing of developmental projects as well as welfare of legislators.
