Foreign investors have renewed interest on locally listed companies following relaxation of indigenisation laws by the government.  

Foreign investors have backed the relaxation of indigenisation policies which will see the 51/ 49 percent shareholding requirement being reserved only to platinum and diamond mining.              

An economist Dr Gift Mugano says the renewed foreign investor sentiment is likely to increase the value of shares being traded on the local market.                 

The Zimbabwe Stock Exchange is this year expected to end on an overall market value of about US$7 billion.                            

However, the renewed interest by the foreign investors is being anticipated to improve returns for the shareholders.
