Addressing participants at the Business Partnership Forum, Adam Jeffersons, a South African-based business Consultant, said it was vital for the inclusive government to devise a plan in which the public and private sector could work together to develop infrastructure in the country.
“The Zimbabwean government should take a leaf from South Africa, China and India’s book and learn from their experiences,” he said. “The government should swallow its pride and appreciate that it has something to learn from South Africa where there is private-public partnership in development of infrastructure such as roads, hospitals, water reticulation and power generation systems.”
Jeffersons said Zimbabwe should be dedicated to discussing specific projects that the public and private sector could come and work on together, such as Methane gas in Hwange and diamonds in Chiadzwa.
Jefferson underscored the need for local business people to engage in discussion with experts from the countries where associations between the public and privates have been successful.
“The principals in the unity government should strive to work together to rebrand the country and remove the negative perception it has in the international community,” said Jeffersons.Post published in: Business
