At least 20 foreign delegates from India and Turkey are expected to be part of the Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries (CZI) annual congress, as they seek to explore investment opportunities in various sectors of the economy.

This would be the first time that foreign delegates would have participated at the CZI congress, as the industry representative organisation seeks ways of promoting investment through dialogue.

CZI CEO, Mr Clifford Sileya said this year’s annual congress has adopted an investment forum dimension, hence attracting a number of stakeholders across the globe.

He added that there will be a policy review during the congress as a way of informing government of what needs to be done.

The manufacturing sector has been given a lifeline through the Statutory Instrument 64 of 2016 though delays in foreign payments has affected production in the first half of this year.

An India delegation is expected to give an insight into measures their economy has adopted in relation to a vibrant small to medium enterprises sector.
