Relations between Turkey–Zimbabwe

Relations between Turkey–Zimbabwe

In the framework of its Policy of Opening Up to Africa, Turkey opened its Embassy in Harare in 2011. The opening of the Turkish Embassy had a positive effect on the bilateral relations and the frequency of high-level contacts have increased. Both Governments share the common will of establishing closer ties in every possible field by conducting more high-level visits and by completing the legal framework of bilateral relations.

The bilateral trade volume reached $ 9,2 million USD in 2015 (Turkish exports: 4,4 million USD, Turkish imports: 4,8 million USD). Zimbabwe’s main export items are platinum, cotton, tobacco, gold, iron, textile and ready wear whereas machinery and vehicles, other finished products, chemicals, fuel and foodstuffs are the main imports.

The Civil Aviation Agreement was signed in December 2013. Several other agreements in various fields such as economy and trade, agriculture, visas, cooperation between Ministries of Foreign Affairs are currently being negotiated.

48 Turkish citizens currently reside in Zimbabwe.

Turkey allocates every year higher education scholarships to students from Zimbabwe (23 in 2015-2016).
