The Secretary of State for International Trade has not had recent discussions with her Zimbabwean counterparts. The Minister for Africa met with Foreign Minister Shava and Finance Minister Ncube in London on 30th June and discussed political and economic issues including trade and investment. The Minister for Africa noted that the UK would like to see Zimbabwe reach arrears clearance, and that this can happen if Zimbabwe successfully completes an IMF Staff Monitored Programme and makes reasonable progress on political reform. The UK remains open to constructive engagement with the Government of Zimbabwe on these issues.
