“The signing of 500 megawatts of solar power deal in Zimbabwe heralds the beginning of energy revolution and transition in the country, which will cement Zimbabwe’s position as the base for green and sustainable investment on the continent. We congratulate Zimbabwe for being the pioneer in Southern Africa in this promising sector for Africa’s transformation and we are extremely pleased to be associated with this initiative.” Antonio Pedro, Executive Secretary of UNECA About ECA
