ZIMBABWE’s export promotion body, ZimTrade is leveraging on the recently upgraded Zimbabwe-Mozambique diplomatic relations, with an outward seller mission slated for Chimoio, from June 14 to June 16.
The two countries have upgraded bilateral relations from a Joint Permanent Commission of Cooperation to a Bi-National Commission to foster economic trade between the two countries.
The wheels are already in motion for Zimbabwean companies to benefit with firms drawn from fast-moving consumer goods, agricultural inputs and implements, clothing and textiles, packaging materials and mining equipment as well as building and construction materials embarking on an outward mission to Chimoio this month.
The mission is part of Zimbabwe’s efforts to grow trade and business networks between the two countries and is a follow up to the 2021 Mozambique Inward Mission held in Harare.
“Zimbabwe’s exports to Mozambique are mainly dominated by sugar and sugar confectionery, tea and coffee, paper and packaging as well as timber, which is inadequate to address our negative trade position with our neighbouring company. As such, we are pushing to increase exports in this region,” said Danai Majaha, Zimtrade’s communications manager.
Export outward seller missions are critical for Zimbabwe’s economic development matrix anchored on the national development strategy, which is eying export led growth.
