Business leaders anchor vision 2030 aspirations

Story by Stanley James, Business Editor

AS the government is forging ahead with the Vision 2030 plan of transforming Zimbabwe into an upper middle-income society, the role of business leaders in helping authorities is being considered critical.

Our weekly in-depth economic analysis unpacks the role of business leaders in achieving Vision 2030 aspirations.

Economies across the world craft visions whose thrust is on achieving socioeconomic development after a certain targeted duration.

Zimbabwe is already focusing on Vision 2030, with the key focus being on resource mobilisation, stakeholder commitment, government interventions, and development partner support.

Business leaders under the banner of the Zimbabwe Institute of Strategic Thinking this week met to discuss their involvement in ensuring that vision 2030 becomes a reality.

A Business Executive Ms Chiedza Nyakanyanga and Gracelands Waters Resorts Founder, Mrs Grace Musandirire contends that consistent monitoring and evaluation are important elements in achieving Vision 2030 goals.

“The Government is doing its best no wonder why we have convened this gathering to try and assess our position, what we are doing including the need to create a platform towards resource mobilisation that can further accelerate development, is within the context of our organisation that this vision 2030 plan is a Zimbabwean issue that calls upon us as business leaders to also do our best.”

“Monitoring and evaluation are key facets towards the success of this blueprint, therefore going forward it is within the interest of the nation that we try by all means to identify the challenges and look at the progress and shortcomings thereby also enabling us to help responsible authorities on the way forward otherwise given the current involvement of the government we are on the right track but like what I have said earlier it is an issue of concerted efforts to facilitate success,” they said respectively.

Belief in achieving the Vision 2030 targets by the business leaders is also being described by Trauma Centre Chief Executive Officer Dr Vivek Solanki as the first step in implementing projected aims.

“We are the leaders of business so we should be at the forefront in spearheading this noble cause so that our workers can follow suit in fact if we lead even to the Government it will be easier to accelerate development projects that are being cited as key to the achievement of progress and prosperity of Zimbabweans under the Vision 2030 aspirations.”

A government report states that Vision 2030 is focused on promoting innovation, entrepreneurship, equitable development, and prosperity for all Zimbabweans.
