It was stated by the ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Zimbabwe, Mahash Saeed Salem that once again Zimbabwe has opened its arms for business. He predicted that in the near future, the mutual relationships between their countries will grow to almost thrice as strong as they are today.
While partaking in a handover ceremony of medical equipment donated to the Health Ministry of Zimbabwe, the Ambassador quoted this. The President of Republic of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa commended the United Arab Emirates on their initiative of donating more than 2 million dollars in medicines and equipment to National Pharma firm of Zimbabwe, Natfirm, and also for announcing the intention of establish a pharma plant in Zimbabwe locally, which would assist them in improving the delivery of medical supplies, as well as, medicines over the long term.
According to the President, the investment will only not make it possible for the Sub Saharan African nation in reaching its target to provide universal health coverage by 2030, as assured by his Administration, but will also seek to fulfill a continuing mission of returning the former prosperity.
He stated that for a country to prosper economically and socially, health is a pre-requisite. They are delighted and honored to receive the equipment for hospitals from their partners, the UAE. They express earnest gratitude for this generous and timely donation, one which will be directly benefiting their healthcare delivery system, which their administration had assured will be more efficient, of supreme quality and entirely integrated with the immediate term without leaving anyone behind.
He added that his country will be continuing to collaborate with the UAE in addressing the existing gaps in technology and boosting the pharma sector to promote a healthy nation.
