The construction of the new Parliament building in Zimbabwe’s capital city of Harare goes as planned and is scheduled to be fully completed in March next year.
The tremendous progress made by the Chinese companies involved in the project has been highlighted by President Emmerson Mnangagwa who visited the construction site this week.
“We are happy to see the progress achieved here. In fact, I am so amazed by the amount of progress at each visit, which Shanghai Company and the workers have achieved. In a very short period of time since we were last here about five months ago it has been a tremendous success,” the national leader stated.
According to Chinese deputy ambassador to Zimbabwe Mr Zhao Baogang, it is the biggest initiative imposed by the Chinese government on the continent yet, so for the authorities, it is crucial to meet all the deadlines.
The construction, Baogang says, reflects good bilateral cooperation between the two countries.
