The Zimbabwe Listed Companies Forum (ZLCF) has been unveilled as industry executives seek to work with the new government in formulating socio economic developmental policies.

Executives of 69 listed companies have formed the Zimbabwe listed companies forum with convenor of the organisation Advocate Canaan Dube saying it is a reflection of commitment to ensure recovery of industries.

ZLCF chairman Mr Joe Mutizwa said the forum will be providing input to relevant authorities in government on issues affecting viability of companies.

“The forum which is coming when the stock exchange has been hit by a listing drought on the back of tough operating conditions is also critical in restoring business confidence,” said Zimbabwe Stock exchange (ZSE) vice chairman Mr Bart Mswaka.

The ZSE which recorded an all time high value of shares in 2017 is expecting companies to comply with stipulated trading regulations for the benefit of investors.
