HARARE – The Dubai-based group of investors exploring investment opportunities in Zimbabwe are deeply passionate about the country’s agricultural sector.
The visiting delegation of Indian and Dubai-based businessmen met with officials from the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Fisheries and Rural Development in Harare on Thursday.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, John Basera took the opportunity to draw the attention of the delegation to opportunities in Zimbabwe’s agricultural sector.
“It was an enriching presentation that gave the delegation many opportunities in different sub-sectors. The irrigation push we are undertaking has also been a selling point for investors, including agribusiness,” Basera said.
Investors are excited about what Zimbabwe has to offer amid the government’s renewed drive to transform the agricultural sector into an $8 billion industry.
“Some of these investors have already decided to invest in Zimbabwe based on such a presentation. We will continue this tour and are very confident that we will commit to new investments in this country,” said Shaj Ul Mulk, the head of the delegation.
The business delegation will also meet captains of industry and key players in the financial services sector, where they are also looking for profitable investments.
