The United Nations (UN) says it remains committed to spurring economic development in Zimbabwe in a bid to help the country achieve President Mnangagwa’s 2030 agenda.

The newly appointed UN Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr Bishow Parajuli said the international organisation has for many years committed to the nation’s development and will continue to support the President’s vision of transforming the country into an upper middle income economy by 2030.

The Ambassador also revealed that Zimbabwe is among eight African countries selected by the UN to benefit under a US$21 million fund earmarked for gender based violence programmes.

The UN has also been responding positively to emerging humanitarian crises like the recurrent droughts and cholera outbreaks and has been working with the government to find sustainable solutions.
