Mutambara to lead powerful delegation to World Economic Forum

The team which will be led by the Deputy Prime Minister Professor Arthur Mutambara will participate at the economic forum set to draw private investors and government officials from different countries around the world.

Speaking to ZBC News, Finance Minister Tendai Biti said logistics for the trip are almost complete and the delegation is ready to participate at the international business forum.

Minister Biti said the team will take the opportunity to push for foreign direct investment into the country by marketing the country to potential investors.

The World Economic Forum to be held in Cape Town, will focus on the impact of the current global financial crisis on Africa’s traditional drivers of growth including foreign capital flows, demand for oil and commodities, and infrastructure development.

A key focus will be on Africa’s investment climate and identifying practical solutions to foster better business practices across the continent.
