Government is considering a regional integration policy that will assist local companies in venturing into the regional markets.
As the countryâ€™s industry gears for benefits arising from the COMESA Customs Union, government is working on a system that will solve challenges affecting local firms in terms of regional exports.
The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Regional Integration and International Co-operation Mr. Tedious Chifamba said, consultations for the policy have been finalised in a move that will unlock regional investment opportunities and exports.
Mr. Chifamba said it is in the interest of stakeholders that the countryâ€™s industry regains its market share in the regional markets.
Trade experts say Zimbabweâ€™s industry stands to benefit from increased regional exports mainly in the COMESA trading bloc whose annual trade revenue inflows amount to US$ 1 billion.
