Online Desk |  1 year ago | local

Vice President Dr Constantino Chiwenga says Zimbabwe's development targets will only be met if the country re-industrialises through innovation and retooling. 

Officially opening the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF), International Business Conference in Bulawayo this morning, Vice President Chiwenga said increased value addition in the agriculture sector will spur the country's economic development. 

He added that value chain addition in pharmaceuticals, vehicle assembly, iron and steel, mining and plastic waste recycling are also being targeted.

The 62nd edition of the ZITF which began on Monday in Bulawayo ends on Saturday running under the theme, Rethink, Reimagine, Re-invent Value Chains for Economic Development,”
