In an interview last week during a tour of Nyanga resorts, the Chief Executive Officer of the South African-based property and investment company, Globe Africa, Ingrid Molopo, said the resort area had the potential to become “The Cape Town of Zimbabwe” in terms of property development within the next decade.
“But Zimbabwe has to work to bring positive changes in the political and economic situation. The business world understands that the Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s position in the inclusive government could have resulted in the creation of a variety of appealing investment opportunities in the country. We feel that there
is need for the government of Zimbabwe to iron out political differences between Zanu (PF) and MDC-T so that the country moves forward in terms of investment,” he said.
Molopo said the Eastern Highlands was one of the world’s premier adventure tourism destinations and despite the economic downturn and challenging political climate; it remained a popular tourist destination.
“We have been receiving information that tourist arrivals have been increasing in the Eastern Highlands. That is what has prompted us to make a tour and see whether there were any business opportunities. We will engage the various stakeholders in some
business talks and to see how best can we expand the tourism opportunities,” said Molopo.Post published in: Travel
