Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube takes questions from CNN’s Richard Quest

Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube has told the global community that Zimbabwe is ‘the biggest buy in Africa’ right now.

He made the remarks during a CNN Quest Means Business show hosted by Richard Quest where he also explained on the reforms that government is undertaking to correct the twin deficit and to ensure the new status does not breathe corruption.

“We are dealing with corruption….we are intolerant of corruption…we have said so in our budget…we are focusing on the economy,” said Professor Ncube.

Zimbabwe’s economic reforms are under spotlight across the globe on the back of current challenges affecting industry and commerce.

Professor Ncube appearing on the Richard Quest Show says it might be a tough road to economic recovery but the Zimbabwean government is walking the talk to ensure the economy is open and recovered.

“We need to have our debts restructured so as to open Zim for investment. Zimbabwe is easily the biggest buy in Africa right now…and there is rule of law, property rights are secure,” he said.

Professor Ncube committed to the global community the new dispensation’s focus on economics rather than politics.

Under the government’s Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP), Zimbabwe seeks to create a favourable climate for doing business, attract investments, improve social amenities and create jobs among others.
