A World Bank business delegation is in Zimbabwe to assess the countryâ€™s economic performance during the past eight months.
The visiting delegation is in talks with key government ministries and the private sector on policies to consolidate macro-economic gains as well as restoring business confidence.
In an interview in Harare, World Bankâ€™s country Director for Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe, Ms Kundhavi Kadiresan said the multilateral institution is interested in improving relations with the government of Zimbabwe.
â€œWe are in Zimbabwe to mend ties and we hope this will work out,â€ said Ms Kadiresan.
The World Bankâ€™s Country Manager for Zimbabwe, Mr Mungai Lenneiye says the Bretton Woods institution is also involved in discussions with the government on a favourable debt repayment strategy to resume financial rescue packages.
â€œWe are also looking into the issue of funding policies for Zimbabwe,â€ said Mr Lenneiye.
The Bretton Woods institution has been criticised for its involvement in the countryâ€™s economic policies while refusing to provide any meaningful financial support, amid calls by economic experts for government to continue focusing on mobilising capital from internal resources.
The World Bankâ€™s team, which arrived in the country last week, is expected to finalise its meetings by end of this week.
