A primary school that was built by the Chinese government in Harare has started operating, says David Coltart, Zimbabwe’s minister of education, sport, arts and culture.

Coltart told Xinhua that the Harare school opened on January 26.

The school was built at the same time as another school in Bindura which opened in 2011.

Bindura, located 80 kilometres north east of Harare, is the provincial capital of Mashonaland Central Province.

The two schools are part of the eight cooperation programs that China promised to undertake in Zimbabwe under the framework of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC).

Some of the projects have already been completed including an agricultural demonstration center and a friendship hospital.

Launched in 2000 by China and African countries, FOCAC has become an integral platform to enhance trade and cooperation between the two sides.
