World Bank CEO Kristalina Georgieva with President Emmerson Mnangagwa on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland

World Bank CEO Kristalina Georgieva this Thursday met with President Emmerson Mnangagwa on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The President also met with IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde.

The two global financial institutions welcomed President Mnangagwa’s commitment to stabilising the Zimbabwean economy and working towards normalising the country’s engagement with the international community.

The WB and the IMF reiterated their commitment to continue to support Zimbabwe as it addresses its economic challenges.

President Mnangagwa’s schedule in Davos has been a tight one as he tries to honour all requests to meet him.

He has used all the engagements to tell the world that Zimbabwe is now open for business and investors are welcome to come and discuss opportunities available in the country.

The President says some of the potential investors are ready to come while others have opted to wait for the harmonised elections which due in a few months time.
