We need to make sure that the Chinese currency is found in Zimbabwe. We also need to move with speed in making sure that there is and there are settlements of transaction between Zimbabwe and China using Yuan as opposed to use of any other currencies…This will go a long way in increasing trade between Zimbabwe and China; it will go a long way in increasing investment in Zimbabwe and China and vice versa.
