Spanish investors have expressed their readiness to exploit the economic opportunities being availed under the new dispensation and have stressed their commitment to supporting the country in pushing for the removal of unjustified economic sanctions.

A roundtable meeting organised by Spanish Exporters and Investors Club, Honourary Consulate of Zimbabwe and the Lupicinio International Law Firm on the sidelines of the ongoing Madrid International Tourism Fair (FITUR) saw Spanish investors pledging to support Zimbabwe’s economic transformation drive by investing in key sectors of the economy.

Newly appointed Honorary Consul of Zimbabwe in Spain, Jose Vinals Camallonga, said the economic reforms by Zimbabwe’s new administration has excited many investors and stressed his commitment to support the campaign for the removal of the unjustified sanctions.

The Zimbabwe delegation took time to explain to the investors the thrust of the new dispensation and assured the Spanish investors of government’s resolve to further enhance the investment climate.

Zimbabwe and Spain have over the years maintained strong diplomatic relations.

In the tourism sector, Spain remains a key market for Zimbabwe despite arrivals from the European Union country having gone down from around 60 000 to the current level of 8 000 tourists per annum.
