Zimbabwean business people based in South Africa and South African investors have a date with President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who has brought hope after laying out a grand vision to revitalise Zimbabwe’s ravaged economy.

Coming at a time when the government has made its intentions clear with regards to the amendment of the Indigenisation and Empowerment Act, the business meeting slated for this Thursday in Pretoria has generated a lot of interest among Zimbabwean business people based in South Africa and South African investors who are interested in investing in Zimbabwe.

Speaking from his base in South Africa, Zimbabwe – South Africa Forum Chief Executive, Mr Jabu Mabobo said the new political dispensation has revived the interests of the diaspora community to work with the government in order to turn around the economy.

Zimbabwe’s Ambassador to South Africa, Ambassador Isaac Moyo has sent out invitations to business people in various sectors who have shown interest to support a system that is in favour of economic development and an investment friendly environment.

The Zim-South Africa Forum is a grouping of Zimbabwean business people based in South Africa, who are ready to help revive the economy in response to President Mnangagwa’s call for Zimbabweans in the diaspora to invest back home, while South Africa investors have been motivated by the new government’s promises to guarantee the rights of foreign investors.
