"There can be development in the sector if we get capital and the necessary technology as we have the manpower which is well educated and skilled," he added.

Developing infrastructure, he said, would help boost the growth of other economic sectors. But when all is said and done enabling infrastructure play a part, he said.

"Our roads are narrow and poor in comparison with developed countries so we need to broaden them and that also requires lots of money," he said.

Head of the Chinese delegation Deputy Minister of Commerce Jiang Zengwei said his country would continue to support Zimbabwe in developing its economy.

"We have reached a new stage of economic advancement and we will continue to support with capital and technology to further strengthen our relations," he said.

He said the Chinese are keen on investing in Zimbabwe. "We want to promote cooperation in key sectors such as agriculture and mining and further expand the light industry like textiles," said Jiang.
