Welcome, Tigashire, Siyalemukela!
It gives me great pleasure to warmly welcome you to the Embassy of Switzerland in Zimbabwe.
The bilateral relations between Switzerland and Zimbabwe, which will reach a 40 year milestone in 2020, are currently going through a particular moment of affirmation and intensification, not only at the political level – which has always been very cordial, but also at the level of international cooperation and business development – witnessed by the big number of Swiss companies that have a footprint in Zimbabwe.
I strongly believe that the increased success of the cooperation programmes and the political engagement will contribute even further to consolidate the mutual knowledge between both peoples and will lend a new dynamism and intensification of the cultural, commercial and economic ties between our two countries.
Among the factors that has underpinned the dynamism of our bilateral relations, if not the most important, is undoubtedly the Swiss community in Zimbabwe, to whom I would like to express a particular word of appreciation and recognition as a continued example of hard-work and success that have been key to foster and enhance Switzerland’s name particularly in Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia and the rest of the Southern African region.
I count on your support and invite you to our Facebook Page for further dialogue and interaction that will surely enable us to provide a better public service to you.
Ambassador of Switzerland to Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia.
