A 15-member Chinese business delegation met Zimbabwean Vice President John Nkomo on Monday to discuss investment issues and ways of strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries.

Head of the delegation and former deputy foreign minister Ji Peiding said the visit is also aimed at cementing relations between China and Zimbabwe.

"My visit to Zimbabwe this time which I could describe as a homecoming is to further relations between China and Zimbabwe," Ji, who once worked in the African country for many years, told reporters soon after meeting Nkomo.

He said the business delegation is interested in investing in such sectors in Zimbabwe as infrastructure, mining and medical.

The delegation was accompanied by Chinese ambassador to Zimbabwe Xin Shunkang, who also pledged to further improve bilateral relations between the two countries.

"My task is to let more Chinese people understand the situation here," he said.

China and Zimbabwe share strong and growing relations which date back to the days of Zimbabwe's 1970s liberation war.

The two countries will mark their 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations on April 18, 2010.
