AS business engagements gather momentum at the country’s premier trade showcase in Bulawayo, exhibitors are confident the 2021 edition of the ZITF will surpass expectations.
Despite taking off on an unusual low note induced by the Covid-19 pandemic, Day Three of the country’s biggest trade expo has brought smiles to exhibitors and buyers, whose expectations have been more than matched.
Exhibitions Coordinator for the Office of the President and Cabinet Major (Retired) Dr Anywhere Mutambudzi said the platform has repositioned Zimbabwe’s economic prospects.
“We are here to invite all economic actors to share the Zimbabwean vision of becoming a preferred investment destination. Those who visit our stands have commended our interactive engagements,” said Dr Anywhere Mutambudzi.
Local exhibitors say their participation has paid off after maximising the well-subscribed investment Indaba.
“This day proved that ZITF never disappoints. After Covid-19 impact, we thought it will be difficult to have interactive sessions as we had.”
“Our business to business meetings paid off, our expectations were surpassed.”
The fourth day of the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair will open gates to citizens above the age of 18 to suppress the chances of the spread of Covid-19.
