POSTPONED: Zimbabwe Building Business: Economic Development and Regional Impacts

Chatham House, London

Africa Programme, Economic Growth and Investment


Hon Dr Tapiwa Mashakada, Minister of Economic Planning and Investment Promotion, Zimbabwe


Confidence in the Zimbabwean business environment has been growing, as the economy has undergone a period of change in recent years with GDP more than doubling since 2008. Zimbabwe's regional and international partners, and potential investors, are following political developments closely as the country's presidential and parliamentary elections loom which are seen as a litmus test for the country's trajectory. 

Hon Dr Tapiwa Mashakada will discuss the business environment and the importance of national development and regional engagement for ensuring the continued recovery of the Zimbabwean economy.  

Unfortunately, this event has been postponed.
