VP Emmerson Mnangagwa is scheduled to travel to Europe tomorrow for a trade and investment promotion trip to lure investors long affected by the West’s economic sanctions regime.
Mnangagwa said the visit to Europe was part of government’s drive to attract investors.
Speaking soon after touring the Sunway City Integrated Park near Ruwa, Mnangagwa said his intended visit to Europe was part of government’s drive to attract investors into the country.
“I am also going to Europe on Friday to attract huge companies to come and invest? I will be able to speak with vigour (after touring the Sunway City Integrated Park) and clarity and attract major companies to come to Zimbabwe,” said Mnangagwa.
The Vice President commended efforts by Sunway City (Pvt) Ltd in developing a world class integrated industrial, commercial, residential and recreational park that provides relevant infrastructural development and economic growth.
He said he visited some industrial parks in China during his visit last week where he was informed by the Minister of Industry and Commerce Mike Bimha of a similar park in the country.
“Let me say- we saw many companies and addressed 86 global companies in China that are willing in here,” Mnangagwa said.
Mnangagwa said he had agreed with Bimha to hold an International Investment Conference in October where huge global companies are scheduled to attend and explore investment opportunities in the country.
The VP was recently in China for the same mission, as the country seek to attract more FDI inflows.
