“If I get the chance, I highlight the country’s investment opportunities in agriculture, mining, manufacturing and tourism, while also telling my fellow Swedes about Zimbabwean products,” he said. “Investment would enable more bilateral meetings.”

Liden said he also extended calls for Swedish tourists to come and see the sights that Zimbabwe had to offer.

“Zimbabwe is an amazing country. I always encourage people I know to come here,” he said.

Sweden and Zimbabwe’s history dating back to the first Lutheran missionaries who established Mnene hospital in Mberengwa. This resulted in the Swedes becoming the first aid workers in the country, and their commitment resulted in schools being built and hospitals being constructed. Today, Sweden continues to give support to important sectors such as education, transport and health. It is also one of the international partners who established the Education Transition Fund.
