Land issues—including extreme racial disparities in land ownership, insecurity of land tenure and property rights, control over fertile land and mineral reserves, and insecurity of community land rights—have played a central role in Zimbabwe’s history which continues to this day.  Located in Southern Africa, between South Africa and Zambia, Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia) achieved independence from colonial rule in 1980. Though rich in mineral resources, the vast majority of Zimbabweans live in poverty. By January 2009, only 6% of the population worked in the formal sector.

    O presidente do Zimbábue, Emmerson Mnangagwa, está cortejando investidores chineses, enquanto a província chinesa de Zhejiang se compromete com um acordo de parceria com duas províncias do Zimbábue.

    A reforma agrária é um tema de discussão perene no Zimbabué. Em 2000, o então Presidente Robert Mugabe começou a expropriar agricultores brancos, e o setor agrário sofreu um grave revés. Dezanove anos mais tarde, os problemas continuam. Recentemente, uma fazenda de café, orquídeas e abacate, administrada com sucesso, foi parcialmente ocupada.

    The UK annexed Southern Rhodesia from the former British South Africa Company in 1923. A 1961 constitution was formulated that favored whites in power. In 1965 the government unilaterally declared its independence, but the UK did not recognize the act and demanded more complete voting rights for the black African majority in the country (then called Rhodesia). UN sanctions and a guerrilla uprising finally led to free elections in 1979 and independence (as Zimbabwe) in 1980.
