THE importance of the national dress in fostering pride and identity came to the fore this Friday as the Harare Metropolitan province staged a national dress dinner in the capital.

The national fabric is a symbol of the country’s rich history and culture.

“The national fabric is a symbol of our rich history and culture. It is a reminder of the struggles that our people have endured and overcome.

“It is a symbol of our hope and future and reminds us that we are also part of our everyday life. I am proud of its role in promoting brand Zimbabwe, where the First Lady is the national ambassador brand ambassador.

“I encourage all Zimbabweans to embrace the national fabric and wear it with pride,” said Minister of Information Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services, Honorable Tatenda Mavetera

“We have seen youth with various businesses we must support them. We want to thank First Lady Amai for the good works she is doing for the country. She teaches us respect, teamwork, accountability, value, or time, and she also taught us to love one another. Let us emulate her and her work ethic,” said Minister of Youth Empowerment, Development and Vocational Training, Honorable Tino Machakaire.

The government is confident that heritage based tourism is the way to go to achieve Vision 2030, said the Minister of Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Honorable Babra Rwodzi.

“We as the Ministry of Tourism encourage everyone, including workers in restaurants and hotels to wear our national fabric. We should take pride in our own as we do, even in gastronomy tourism. Let us love or own pride. This is in line with our thrust to market our country. Wherever i go to represent the country, I go with this dress that we want to be identified with.”

The national fabric has national symbols such as the Zimbabwe bird and the Chevron pattern, among other designs.
