Zimbabwe in bid to clear mining project proposals

By Stanely James Business Editor
ZIMBABWE has started clearing project proposals for the mining industry as part efforts to ensure the sector effectively contributes to the country’s economic development.
Processing of mining proposals for claims, exploration and prospecting has been a challenge for companies in the mining sector.
The move has seen government accruing a huge backlog which requires concerted efforts for the benefit of mining entities.
Responding to inquiries about the backlog, the Deputy Minister of Mines and Mining Development, Honourable Polite Kambamura outlined efforts to clear outstanding project proposals.
“We are doing our best to ensure that there is progress as we seek to achieve the intended efforts of the ease of doing business in Zimbabwe and therefore create that basis for increased activities,” said the Deputy Minister.
Government has identified the mining industry as one of the key pillars for economic development with players in the entire value chain meeting this week to chart the way forward regarding operational efficiency.
