3. Public Sector – Government Ministries and Parastatals
The President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, His Excellency Comrade E.D. Mnangagwa has declared that Zimbabwe is “Open for Business”. This mantra influenced the choice for Zimbabwe to exhibit under the opportunity sub-theme. Under the re-engagement Programme, the Government of Zimbabwe is mobilizing and motivating everyone, including the citizens, private and public sector, Diasporans, and foreigners to take up opportunities, in all the areas including Investments, trade, tourism and more. The Government, together with the private sector is undertaking to create new opportunities in all the sectors including for sustainable development towards a high middle-income economy by 2030.
