Zimbabwean Tourism Minister Courts Brazil Ahead of 2010 World Cup

Zimbabwe Tourism Minister Walter Mzembi said Tuesday that his ongoing visit to Brazil could pay off for the Southern African country's battered travel sector in the months to come.

Mzembi told VOA that his delegation has entered marketing agreements with Brazil and is lining up a visit by a trade delegation from the South American country.

The minister told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that he has invited Brazil's national soccer team to hold its practice sessions in Zimbabwe ahead of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa – but faces plenty of competition.
