Work on the road infrastructure and harbour at Kanyemba border post in Mashonaland Central Province is now at an advanced stage with calls for investors to maximise on this shortest route that links Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Upon completion of the project, the route will reduce the distance between Zambia and Zimbabwe by 500 kilometres thereby promoting enhanced trade between the two countries.

An agreement sealed between the two countries will also result in the construction of a harbour at Kanyemba border post with revelations that Zambia is already at advanced stages to institute this new plan.

At a pre-investment conference organised by Mbire Rural District Council held in Harare, government revealed it is confident that this project will attract critical investment to the area.

Power utility, ZESA Holdings said it is ready to partner the district through the provision of electricity one of the key variables to attracting investment.

The main conference to be hosted in Mbire district on the 23rd of next month has generated interest from various stakeholders who were exposed to existing opportunities in the area.

Since last year, the country has embarked on rapid transformational programmes of doing business across various sectors of the economy.
