Prince on business in Africa

Prince Andrew urged British businesses to explore more investment and trade opportunities in Zimbabwe, saying its economic climate was improving rapidly.

The prince arrived in Zimbabwe yesterday for a three-day visit during which he will witness a joint military exercise by eight southern African nations. Britain is partly funding the exercise, in which some 1,100 troops from Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zimbabwe are taking part. The exercise, aimed at honing peace-keeping skills, is the first of its kind in Africa. Reuters - Harare
