Vice President Mujuru, who was speaking to members of the business community after officially opening a US$5,2 million Delta Corporation plastic bottling plant, said the private sector should take a leading role in the revival of the economy by increasing output. 

 

She said although several companies are still experiencing production challenges, government is committed to full scale operations for key sectors of the economy that have a potential of improving business confidence.
 
 “This new initiative is quite good and we hope in the future it will translate into macro-economic growth and boost other productive sectors of the country,” said Cde. Mujuru.

 

Delta Corporation chairman, Dr Robby Mupawose said the company will assist government in business growth opportunities by focusing on production units that also generate funds to the treasury.

 

“This plant is a clear testimony that our vision is to complement  several policies being put in place to increase economic activities,” said Mr. Mupawose.

 

The commissioning  of the plant comes at a time when government is focusing on the  revival of industrial output through mobilising offshore credit facilities in the form of loans at affordable interest rates as industrialists target a 60% productivity rate by end of this year.
