Ambassador’s Welcome Message
H.E. Tadeous Tafirenyika Chifamba
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the USA, Costa Rica, Panama, and Mexico
The Embassy of Zimbabwe in Washington D.C. is a key pillar of advancing the country’s engagement and reengagement thrust with the United States of America.
Accordingly, the Embassy remains focused in pursuit of economic diplomacy, including diaspora involvement in national development and the normalization of bilateral relations with the USA.
The Embassy’s economic diplomacy prioritizes deepening State Level engagements throughout the various States in the USA, exploiting all the available opportunities and in the process unlocking the immense potential that exists between the two countries. This should yield sustenance and exponential trade and investment growth for the benefit of the two economies. This includes deepening cooperation in all sectors of the economy, including Mining, Education, Sports, Culture, Arts, Tourism, Conservation, Science, Technology, and Innovation, among others.
We encourage all foreign investors to come and be our partners in the country’s development trajectory as we forge mutually beneficial relationships.
We also recognize the continued and valuable contributions from Zimbabwean living in the diaspora who have become a dominant force in driving the national development agenda through remittances. We continue to encourage mainstreaming this important resource towards the various business opportunities, in the main spectrum of the economy. The Embassy, in this regard, stands ready to provide the necessary guidance and facilitation to the prospective investors in this endeavor.
The Embassy’s approach and interventions is guided by His Excellency, the President’s Mantra that Zimbabwe is ‘a friend to all and an enemy to none’. An all-inclusive approach will, therefore, be pursued as the Mission seeks collective wisdom in the advancement of the country’s development agenda. Hence, all our valued stakeholders are integral to this process.
I look forward to a fruitful and mutually beneficial engagement with all our esteemed stakeholders.
I Thank You!
