Zimbabwe, South Sudan Develop Joint Commission

HARARE (Zimbabwe) Nov 28 (Bernama) -- Zimbabwe and South Sudan are developing a Joint Commission of Cooperation (JCC) to strengthen collaboration between the two countries, Zimbabwe news agency New Ziana reported.

Addressing delegates at a meeting organised by trade promotion body ZimTrade here, Foreign Affairs deputy director multilateral economics Batiraishe Mukonoweshuro said the JCC would be concluded next year.

"Basically it is an umbrella framework for cooperation in all areas. It provides for private to private cooperation, government to government cooperation and government to private cooperation. We are still developing it," he said.

"It gives surety of political will and commitment by governments of South Sudan and Zimbabwe. This shows that the two governments will have a buy in on what will be happening."

Mukonoweshuro said the JCC is the first one between Zimbabwe and South Sudan.

"All those who want to do business in any of the two countries can request for assistance either from South Sudan or Zimbabwe," he added.

South Sudan embassy second secretary for trade and investment Fiona Wongo confirmed that the two countries were working on a JCC.

"Yes we are working on a Joint Commission of Cooperation to expand trade and investment between us. There are many opportunities in South Sudan that Zimbabwean investors can exploit," she said.
