As Zimbabwe continues on the engagement and reengagement drive, women in business have been reminded that they have a role to play in promoting Zimbabwe as a viable investment destination.
Zimbabwean business women based in different countries across the world recently met for a conference in Dubai with discussions centred on how they can capitalise on the EXPO 2020 Dubai to grow their enterprises.
Zimbabwe’s High Commissioner General for the Dubai Expo Ambassador Mary Mubi, called attention to the fact that the re-engagement agenda is not just for government officials.
“When we talk about re engagement and engagement it’s not just about government, it is about everyone. For every government official who leaves the airport, they have a role to play. It is not just for the ministers. We all have a role to play and you need to be clear about your message,” she said.
The meeting was organised by the Red Lipstick Foundation, which seeks to empower women with the founder of the organisation Mrs Abigail Magwenzi highlighting the importance of the engagement.
“It is a clarion call for all Zimbabwe women to come together and have a plan and action for strategic partnerships,” Mrs Magwenzi said.
The six-month long EXPO 2020 Dubai provides fertile ground for the participating 192 countries to pursue business deals. It comes as the country’s re-engagement and engagement drive is among the priorities of the Second Republic as it intensifies efforts to attract foreign investment in various sectors of the economy.
