A delegation of 16 Zimbabwean Chief Executives, led by CEO Africa Roundtable, is travelling to the United States of America on a 10-day trade and investment business mission from 09 October – 20 October 2018.
In a press release, Chief Executive of CEO Roundtable Kipson Gundani said the mission seeks to implement the nascent call by President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa that Zimbabwe is open for business and the delegation acts as a honey-pot to local businesses and players who would otherwise prove extremely difficult to access.
“The mission will provide major opportunities to network with key business leaders in the USA and beyond,” Gundani said.
“The issues to be deliberated will shape incentives for investment and business partnerships.”
Chief Executive shows hope of Zimbabwe’s economic recovery despite the country facing financial challenges.
“After decades of constant political experimentation and sluggish development, Zimbabwe is at the cusp of potential growth take-off on the bedrock of a new democratic order,” Gundani said.
“This potential cannot be realised without a dynamic private sector with the fortitude to engage and re-engage business partners across the world to foster entrepreneurship, build strategic business partnerships and crowd-in private investment.”
“The mission brings together players from energy, agriculture, real estate, technology development, logistics, tourism, banking and finance, health, education and infrastructure just to name a few.”
The Zimbabwe business delegation is travelling to the USA despite the northern American country’s renewal of sanctions over the southern African nation.
Zimbabwe is currently on a reconciliation with western countries which imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe over human rights issues.
