We’ll continue to engage international community: Vice President Chiwenga September 07, 2018

ZIMBABWE will continue engaging the international community and open up investment opportunities to any country as Government forges ahead with its drive to transform the economy and improve livelihoods for its citizens, Vice President Dr Constantino Chiwenga has said. Officially opening the 11th edition of the Sanganai/Hlanganani World Tourism Expo in Bulawayo yesterday evening, Dr Chiwenga said the tourism sector in particular, presents a huge opportunity for growth and was a major beneficiary of the on-going economic reforms being implemented by President Mnangagwa’s Government. The Vice President, who earlier conducted a tour of the exhibition stands at the Zimbabwe International Exhibition Centre, said this year’s showcase has provided a unique opportunity for buyers and international media to sample and appreciate various tourism products offered in the country. He said he had no doubt that the overwhelming participation of 325 companies and 150 buyers from 23 countries would result in a tourism boom in the short to medium term. “The Government of Zimbabwe is therefore, committed to increase funding for the tourism sector and the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority’s marketing and development programmes in particular,” said Dr Chiwenga.
