Description

The aim of the Zimbabwe Trade & Investment Seminar will be to create a platform where both foreign trade and local investments can come together to discuss ways to contribute to the economic  development of the new governance of the Zimbabwean government. 

The June 2018 edition of The Africa Report involved a Country Focus spread on Zimbabwe, including an interview with the seminar's official Keynote Speaker, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade of the Republic of Zimbabwe Mr. Sibusiso Muyo. Click the link below to read more!

Speakers

Mr. Sibusiso Busi Moyo hails from the Mberengwa district in Southern Zimbabwe, not far from Bulawayo. He is married and has two sons. Mr. Moyo fought in the liberation war that ended decades of white-minority rule in 1980, and stayed with the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, as a Major General in the army until late 2017. Towards the end of his military career, Mr. Moyo obtained a Masters’ degree in Science and International Relations (2011) and a doctorate in Philosophy in International Relations (2016), both at the University of Zimbabwe. On November 15th, 2017, Mr Moyo shot to world fame when he gave a televised speech on Zimbabwean State TV, during the turbulent days surrounding the change of power from then-President Robert Mugabe to the incumbent President Emmerson Mnangagwa. On December 1st, Mr. Moyo was appointed as Zimbabwe’s Foreign Minister.

After taking office, the new Zimbabwean government has gone on a number of international road shows, in a bid to regain investor-confidence. Mr Moyo met in Brussels with the European Commission’s Foreign Affairs chief Frederica Mogherini on April 27h. He also met with a delegation of Belgian businesspeople, as well as with NABC representatives. NABC just concluded a trade mission to Zimbabwe, with 16 Dutch companies participating.

Although Zimbabwe will go to the polls in July, it is still the expectation that Mr. Moyo’s party will continue playing a prominent role in Zimbabwean politics in the upcoming years.
