BEIJING, -- President Emmerson Mnangagwa says Zimbabwe's ruling Zanu PF party and the Communist Party of China (CPC) should form stronger synergies to match the level of co-operation reached at government level.
The two countries stepped up their relationship to a comprehensive strategic partnership following talks between President Mnangagwa and President Xi Jinping here Tuesday.
President Mnangagwa, who is making a State visit to China this week, his first outside Africa sing taking office last November, said Wednesday that one area which could result in stronger ties between the two parties was co-operation in the field of ideology.
He said Zanu PF was in need of technical assistance to set up a full fledged school of ideology similar to the Party School of the Communist Party of China (PSCPC) which is responsible for training officials from the Chinese ruling party.
We are impressed by the fact that the majority of people either in government or the party from the middle level to the upper levels of the structures of the party and government have passed through this school,
he said after a tour of the school in Beijing.
We shall appeal to you to assist us at two levels, one at the level of research where we must re-construct our liberation and political history, reconstruct it and preserve it. At the second level we would want your assistance with professors and lecturers to assist us in producing learning material for the school.
