Zimbabwe is now well positioned to tap into multi-billion dollar investment opportunities through the establishment of the Africa Investment Hub, effectively making the country the third nation on the continent to host an office of such a magnitude after Nigeria and South Africa.
A new dawn for the Zimbabwean economy has set where the nation looks set to maximise on a database of international billionaires through the support of the Africa Investment Hub launched in the capital today.
Infact the project is viewed as a soft cushion to ensuring the proposed Dangote deals sail through with a confirmation that the billionaire remains on track to identifying opportunities in coal and lime.
The Africa Investment Hub is an initiative driven by objectives that seek to identify business opportunities, create linkages and facilitate investments.
With offices in the United States of America, Nigeria and South Africa, the establishment of an office in Zimbabwe highlights the renewed confidence and interest coming from the international markets that has warranted an extension of this vast business web that carries big names such as Africa’s richest man Mr Aliko Dangote, Mr Tony Elumelu among other important conglomerates.
Officially launching the initiative, deputy Minister of Finance and Economic Development Honourable Terrence Mukupe noted that this project dovetails with the upscaled interest on Zimbabwe.
There has been growing interest on Zimbabwe within the last five months with revelations that enquiries worth $5 billion are in waiting for Zimbabwe.
Government admits that while these figures are important what is critical is for them to be translated into tangible business deals and one way of doing this according to Honourable Mukupe is to eliminate bureaucratic elements that have and still stifle investment processing procedures.
