Zimbabwe and Brazil recently signed an agreement to boost cotton production in the former, which will receive the latter’s production expertise in capacity building and technology. The project will start in January. Agriculture is the mainstay of the Zimbabwean economy, which needs diversification to create more opportunities for value addition.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Zimbabwe’s secretary for foreign affairs and international trade James Manzou said the project comes soon after signing of the livestock and development project on November 1.

The validation mission on cotton production is critical to the Zimbabwe’s economic growth and will help improve livelihoods, strengthen the economy and realize Zimbabwe’s Vision 2030, a newspaper report from the country quoted him as saying.
