Staff Report |  4 months ago | top

In light of a huge appetite by the Zimbabwe Diaspora community to invest in the country given the array of skills they have acquired abroad, President Mnangagwa has directed relevant ministries to set up a working committee on diaspora affairs.

The committee, President Mnangagwa said, will redress deficiencies in the current set up that have resulted in the vital Diaspora community being left behind, even though it is equipped with relevant skills that can aid the country’s development, towards Vision 2030, to become an upper middle class economy.

He directed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade should chair the committee, deputized by the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, with the ministries of Home Affairs, Industry and Trade and that responsible for Lands and Agriculture also taking part in the working committee which will report to Cabinet
