Egypt Urges Zim Companies to Engage Global Business Community

Namibia: Peugeot Will Export 'Once Issues Are Resolved'

ZIMBABWEAN companies must engage the international community and create relations that foster economic growth, the Egyptian Ambassador to Zimbabwe Mahmoud Amer has said.

In a television interview on the NewZimbabwe.com Business Brief programme Wednesday, Ambassador Amer said the southern African country had a lot of economic potential and it had to take advantage of by engaging other nations across the globe for businesses to grow.

“My advice to the business community in Zimbabwe is to go out and speak to other countries in terms of business. I know there are some sort of syndicates where business people come together under one umbrella and vigorously market at an international level,” Ambassador Amer said.

“Zimbabwe has a lot of potential especially in areas such as health, tourism, and agriculture. People should be more on the outward look rather than the inward look. Companies in Zimbabwe must try to bring in the attention of the international community to showcase what they do.”

The top diplomat also noted the good economic relations between Zimbabwe and Egypt adding they must be enhanced for the benefit of the two countries.

“A lot should be done and can be done to foster good economic relations between Zimbabwe and Egypt. The existing political relations should be expanded and developed into economic magnificence,” he added.

“My colleague ambassador of Zimbabwe in Cairo has the same directives so we are working hand-in-hand to foster economic relations in order to bring them to par so that Zimbabwe and Egypt happily exist.
