HARARE, Mar 15 (PRIME) -- Zimbabwe offers Russia to build a joint metallurgical plant, speaker for the ruling party ZANU-PF Christopher Mutsvangwa told PRIME in an interview released on Wednesday.
He said that a delegation from Russia's Sverdlovsk Region earlier visited the country to discuss joint metals projects.
"We want to establish such a joint facility and we invite Russia, the Sverdlovsk Region, to launch production in our special economic zone to export products to the global markets in the future," Mutsvangwa said.
