Alliance Business Association of South Africa speaks on investing in Zimbabwe

By ZBC Reporter

SOUTH Africa’s Alliance Business Association is convinced that the time to invest in Zimbabwe has come given the vast investment opportunities across all sectors of the economy.

The country’s vast investment opportunities have attracted the attention of investors from across the globe in the wake of an ever increasing investment appetite in destination Zimbabwe.

Alliance of Business Association of South Africa President, Mr Terance Dzeli has been in the country for the past seven days and believes the time to invest in Zimbabwe is now.

 We have been going around the country and met the leadership who assured me of their commitment towards seeing a progressive Zimbabwe. From my interaction with these leaders it has proved that the time to invest is now. First come first served. Agriculture has a huge potential same as mining, he said.

Like any businessman, who is on his initial visit to another country, there are first impressions.

The media must play an important role in marketing Zimbabwe, the story out there is different from what is on the ground. Have heard a lot of negative publicity about Zimbabwe and I can safely say all was misinformation, he added.

This comes at a time when the Zimbabwe Investment Development Agency (ZIDA) has come up with a robust strategy meant to address the ease of doing business in the country.

Agriculture, mining, tourism and infrastructure development are the areas ranked as most attractive in Zimbabwe.
