Business people who exhibited at this year’s edition of Mine Entra have described the fair as a huge success saying the event opened up a number of business opportunities while calling on government to continue putting in place policies that empower the vulnerable groups.

The 22nd edition of Mine Entra conference which roared into life from Wednesday to Friday last week showed that Zimbabwe is warming up to promoting business.

Some of the exhibitors who spoke to ZBC News said the event opened a number of business opportunities and are now looking forward to forge partnerships with a number of stakeholders.

Other exhibitors urged the government to continue opening up opportunities for the youths and women so that they venture into business with less hustles.

The three day mining exhibition was running under the theme, “Harnessing Linkages for Industrial Development”.
