Zimbabwe is exploring partnership opportunities with Ghana in the information and communication technology (ICT) sector as well as tourism and mining, as the two nations look to increase trade relations.

Zimbabwe’s ICT sector is dangling opportunities to Ghanaian investors hoping to build on the successes of the West African nation to boost its own competitiveness.

Ghanaian envoy to Zimbabwe, Ambassador Eric Odeye Enim, who paid a courtesy call on the Minister of ICT and Cyber Security, Cde Supa Mandiwanzira, hinted to future partnerships in this and other sectors.

Zimbabwe hopes to catapult its trade relations with Ghana which mainly have concentrated political ties with very little trade despite abundant opportunities to export to the West African nation.

ICTs present a gateway for robust growth for the Zimbabwean economy which already is investing heavily to improve internet connectivity and reliability through the $98 million national broadband project.
