The Second Republic, led by President E.D. Mnangagwa, continues to build momentum with its engagement and re-engagement policy.

Yesterday, President Mnangagwa met with his counterpart, President Hong Suk Yeol, at the Presidential Offices in Seoul, South Korea, where they discussed bilateral issues between the two nations.

The President was accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Ambassador Fredrick Shava, and other high-ranking Government officials.

In 1994, Zimbabwe and South Korea established diplomatic relations, leading to the reciprocal opening of diplomatic missions. Since then, the two nations have maintained diplomatic and economic bilateral relations.

In February 2023, the bilateral relations between Zimbabwe and the Republic of Korea deepened further when Ambassador James Manzou, Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs and International Trade, visited South Korea on a two-day diplomatic tour. The focus was on promoting trade, investment, and development cooperation between the two countries.

President E.D. Mnangagwa, attending the South Korea-Africa Summit as one of the African leaders, has seized the opportunity to strengthen bilateral relations with South Korea by meeting with the South Korean President. Since taking office, President Mnangagwa has prioritized engaging and reengaging with global leaders for bilateral and multilateral relationships, yielding fruitful results.

As one of the world's most developed economies, South Korea offers expertise in industrial manufacturing technology, aviation, agriculture, and advanced rail systems. Zimbabwe is poised to benefit from these areas of expertise through collaboration and agreements with South Korean counterparts.

Through the engagement and reengagement policy, Zimbabwe continues to attract foreign investors, who are now confident in the country's investment policies under the Second Republic. President Mnangagwa deserves praise for opening up Zimbabwe to the international community, enabling the country to participate in important summits and meetings that bring investment opportunities.
