Special Advisor to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa, said there was much goodwill from the Chinese who have proposed a currency swap with Zimbabwe. “Such an arrangement will establish a credit window for Zimbabwe to access capital goods from China to retool industry,” Mutsvangwa explained.
