An inaugural Pan African Business Summit will be held in Gweru this Saturday and will seek to consolidate the country’s progress towards socio-economic development.

The summit will be attended by business leaders, entrepreneurs, government ministers, philanthropists, investors and captains of industry.

The summit aims at consolidating Zimbabwe’s quest to become an upper middle class income economy by 2030.

Foreign delegates will also grace the summit including the Pan African Leadership Development Centre, Executive Director, Dr Babaloa Omoniyi, who said solutions to Zimbabwe’s economic problems are found within the Zimbabwean people.

Ambassador Brigadier General Dr Wallace Williams, who is the Founder of the African Development Goals Initiative, said they are excited to see and learn on how Zimbabweans are aligning their vision to the African Union (AU) 2063 agenda.

The new dispensation has escalated efforts to create a conducive operating environment through economic and political reforms but the private sector will play a key role in growing the country’s economy.
