Zimbabwe

Ahmadinejad to open Zim trade fair

2010-04-09 08:23

Special Report

Harare - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will officially open Zimbabwe's main trade show later this month, state television reported on Thursday.

"Iran's President Mr Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will officially open this year's Zimbabwe International Trade Fair to be held in Bulawayo," the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation said in a news bulletin.

"This was revealed by a cabinet minister after Iran's new ambassador Mohammed Najav presented his credentials to President Robert Mugabe at State House today."

The trade fair was a major calendar event in Zimbabwe, but has become more localised in recent years as the country battled an economic crisis which saw inflation peaking to 231 million percent.

Zimbabwe enjoys good relations with Iran, as well as several Asian countries after launching a "Look East" policy in response to its isolation which followed Harare's controversial land reforms and disputed 2002 polls.

The fair, from April 20 to 24, will be officially opened on the 23rd.
