mai mujuru 280710.jpgGovernment says it is working on a policy to cut down on bureaucracy for investors who want to partner local people in development programmes.



This was said by Vice President Joice Mujuru while addressing representatives of the private sector at the Infrastructure Development Forum in Harare.


While government has made calls for investors to avail resources for various development projects, bureaucracy has made it difficult for the smart partnerships to achieve desired results.


Cde Mujuru said relevant ministries are working on a comprehensive policy for the establishment of a one stop investment shop to make it easier for potential investors.


“There has been a critical challenge that used to drive away investors that of being asked to move from office to office until one is frustrated. 


“I am reliably informed that the establishment of a one stop investment shop has reached an advanced level and we expect it to assist in a big way,” said Cde Mujuru.


Cde Mujuru said all stakeholders should participate fully in the rehabilitation of the infrastructure in the country through public private partnerships for real economic benefit.


“The reconstruction of this country is everyone’s responsibility.


“We have to work together as a nation so that we are able to improve on our infrastructure,” Cde Mujuru said.


The forum which was organised by Notegate Investments brought together representatives from financial institutions, players in the infrastructural development sector as well as government ministries.


It was aimed at coming up with strategies to help develop the country’s infrastructure in line with the current economic recovery process.
