Information communication technology is expected to play a wider economic role in the country as ICTs are being widely adopted in various social and economic sectors.
This emerged at the ICT Africa exhibition which began in the capital this Tuesday.

Stakeholders who attended the exhibition told the ZBC News that Zimbabwe has become a favourable destination for top ICT suppliers and new technologies since the transition to multi-currency system and the relaxation of import duties for the industry.

“The difference between success and failure is access to information,” said Takawira.

“We’ve come from a base where people were not investing in technology in the past few years,” Georgeou said.

“As our economy continues to grow, I think a lot of companies are going to be able to invest in ICTs,” said Murevanhema.

ICT Africa provided a platform for players to review progress in the sector and emerging trends.

The event was attended by service providers and suppliers in the industry.

The event also featured debates by the representatives of world leading computer and software suppliers operating in the country such as apple and micro-soft.

"I am here for as long as I am still sane, with good memory and will power. I thank God for giving me extra strength. I still have a bright mind; I still have will. I know our history more than you do. I know the wishes of those heroes and those who lie elsewhere more than you do. I know the wishes of the chiefs, dead and alive." - At 6th Zanu PF National People's Congress, 2014.
