The Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries will maintain the drive for private sector familiarisation with Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation with the third workshop to discuss the economic blueprint scheduled to be held in Mutare today. CZI has been spearheading private sector discussions for familiarisation with the economic blue print, Zim-Asset, which will guide Government programmes from 2014-18.
A further workshop will take place at Amber Hotel in Mutare for the people of Manicaland with Minister of Industry and Commerce Mike Bimha set, for the third time, to officially open the event.
Minister of State for Provincial Affairs Manicaland Chris Mushowe and Mayor of Mutare Mr Tatenda Nhamarare were also invited.
"In addition, various business communities and other stakeholders in Manicaland Province are expected to attend the event planned to explore what Zim-Asset is all about," CZI said.
CZI said it is leading discussions on private sector familiarisation with the anchor economic policy. This is being done in a number of ways, including holding of workshops in different areas.
The workshops have been carried out in conjunction with the Office of the President and Cabinet, who are the main drivers of the Zim-Asset 2014-18 programme, and also the two ministries of Industry and Commerce and Finance and Economic Development.
