ZimTrade is advocating for the review of 22 statutory instruments as a way of addressing the ease of doing export business in the country.
In a bid to address the ease of doing export business, ZimTrade put in place two committees to spearhead the process with one doing export regulations, procedures and permits and the other one on export capacity.
While progress has been made by the two thematic committees, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to ensure all the impediments to exports business are addressed.
In an interview ZimTrade chief executive officer, Ms Stembile Pilime said 22 statutory instruments require reviewing with a view to boost the country’s export receipts.
Under the rapid results initiative, government emphasizes the need to generate more foreign currency inflows through increased exports of value-added products.
