Industry experts of both countries recently pleaded for increased air connectivity between Zimbabwe and Turkey for enhanced logistics and transportation, as this will increase trade volumes between the two countries.
ZimTrade chief executive officer Allan Majuru recently spoke at the Zimbabwe and Turkey business webinar, urging the Turkish airline and Airline Zimbabwe to consider establishing a direct route or have a synergy arrangement to ensure ease of movement for both goods and human traffic.
"To facilitate business between the two countries, there is need to make sure that, whether it is Air Zimbabwe or Turkish Airline, there is a direct flight that comes to Zimbabwe or to Turkey from Zimbabwe," he said. "We believe there are a lot of people going to Turkey and also vice versa. So, it's quite something that needs to be taken note of."
Majuru said Turkey has advanced technology that Zimbabwe, riding on the cordial bilateral relations between the two states, could tap into for retooling of local industry to buttress production of value-added goods.
