Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement Minister Perrance Shiri said Zimbabwe should invest in manufacturing vaccines and drugs needed in the agricultural sector.
Shiri said this while officiating at a strategic planning workshop held in Mutare last week. He said Zimbabwe should manufacture its own drugs locally to reduce pressure on scarce foreign currency. Said Shiri:
