Zimbabwe and six other countries are reported to be in Britain’s radar for investments and trade ahead of its exit from the European Union, popularly known as Brexit.
This was revealed by Zimbabwe’ ambassador to the United Kingdom James Manzou in an interview with the Sunday Mail. He said:
Britain is planning on exiting the European Union. Zimbabwe and other East and Southern African countries are signatories to a partnership agreement with the EU called the EU-ESA agreement.

Now that Britain is pulling out of the EU, it means the EU-ESA can no longer trade with them under the terms of that agreement. However, our trade agreement with the rest of the EU continues under the terms of the EU-ESA agreement.
London and Harare have reportedly signed a bilateral trade agreement and Zimbabwe is in the process of ratifying the bilateral agreement.
