Zimbabwe’s drive to create a favourable investment destination is bearing fruit with investors continuing to visit with the intention of exploring business opportunities in some sectors of the country’s economy.

The latest business delegation is from Ghana and is led by the Zimbabwean Ambassador to that country, Mrs Pavelyn Tendai Musaka.

Mrs Musaka indicated that there has been low trade between Zimbabwe and the West African nation, hence the need for local business people to take advantage of new markets in that country and other emerging markets for the growth of the economy.

“Our business people have been reluctant to tap into emerging markets and there is need for aggressiveness among local business people such that they can partner with Ghana business people. The delegation has members from the banking sector, mining, tourism, construction among other sectors and they want to explore existing opportunities in the country with possible engagement for the good of the country’s economy,” said Mrs Musaka.

Represantive of the delegation, Chi-bert Group President, Mr Chuks Ihenetu said they are in the country to seek for partnerships with local business people with a possibility of supplying fuel to the country.

The delegation will hold meetings with government officials and the business community.

Meanwhile, the setting up of the One Stop shop investment centre last year is anticipated to increase foreign direct investment by 25%.
