CZI gets to work on action plans

HARARE - The Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries, a body that represents the manufacturing sector, has begun lobbying for policies to promote sustainable economic growth.

Parastatals must charge economic prices to serve the common person, said CZI President Kumbirai Katsande, who added they wanted the government to invest in infrastructural development.

We have not been investing in areas such as road and communication networks, among others, and thus we have begun encouraging authorities to quickly invest in those areas, he said.

He added that they also wanted an agriculture policy that would promote production.

The policy statement must focus on among other factors, ensuring that small-scale farmers know what to produce, when and how much to grow in order to raise productivity, he said.

We are at the moment working with other stakeholders such as the Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce, Zimbabwe Farmers Union, and the Business Council of Zimbabwe, among others.
