The mantra was initiated by his predecessor, the late Lieutenant-General (Retired) Dr Sibusiso Moyo, under instruction from President Mnangagwa.
He said all officials in the Ministry should be configured to understand economic diplomacy, and hailed the recently launched Management Training Bureau which he said should be utilised.
