Zimbabwean diaspora investors in South Africa have earmarked investment in the manufacturing, transport and energy sectors with the final conclusions expected before year end.

Significant interest has been generated to the country’s key economic sectors from investors in South Africa with deals expected to be finalised before year end.

Zimbabwe is leveraging on the current drive to improve the ease of doing business which has attracted a massive capital investment towards the revival of the National Railways of Zimbabwe.

Investor appetite is also coming from other foreign markets with investment proposals now with the Zimbabwe Investment Authority (ZIA).

The positive sentiment coming from the diaspora investor community has given hope to sectors such as the energy and manufacturing where there was minimal investment.

It is envisaged that investment in these sectors will be critical to boost the current efforts towards the economic resurgence of the country.
