Zimbabwe and the Netherlands are committed to continue strengthening cooperation in various areas, including horticulture and gender empowerment.

Outgoing ambassador of the Netherlands to Zimbabwe Her Excellency Mrs Barbara Van Hellemond bade farewell to the Speaker of Parliament Advocate Jacob Mudenda this Tuesday.

The outgoing ambassador, who has been representing her country in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi for four years, highlighted areas of cooperation that the two countries have strengthened over the years.

“We have been very cooperative with Zimbabwe on agriculture especially horticulture. However, a lot needs to be done on gender based violence which has been witnessed,” she said.

The Second Republic continues to work hard towards the engagement and re-engagement agenda as it seeks to relate with all nations across the globe.
