We are glad that today we are talking about the strategic partnership that envisages work on a systematic perspective basis.
In 2018-2022, MTZ delivered more than 1 800 vehicles to Zimbabwe. Said Vovk:
We know that last year, for the first time in the past 50 years, the country fully provided itself with grain.
It is gratifying that the country succeeded also thanks to BELARUS machinery.
He said the company has a multi-purpose service center in Harare with branches in Mutare and Bulawayo, and also a warehouse for component parts to maintain the delivered machinery.
MTZ together with AFTRADE DMCC is expected to train Zimbabweans on how to operate tractors from Belarus. | Belta
