The Huajian Group of Companies from China has indicated that it is interested in constructing a multi-million dollar industrial park in Bulawayo. Officials from the company met with senior officials from the Bulawayo City Council on Saturday at an exploratory meeting. Commenting on the matter, Bulawayo Town Clerk Mr Christopher Dube
In terms of employment they have projected that they will employ 10 000 people but considering the other downstream benefits, our calculations are that people who will benefit are in excess of 100 000. With such figures, it is clear that this spells great things for the city hence we are excited. We thank the efforts of President Mnangagwa in calling for more Foreign Direct Investment.
The meeting was more of an introductory one where they presented the scope of the project which they want to start in the city. The way they were conversing, I am confident that they will soon be back and the project will start immediately. They indicated that when they start construction, work would have been completed in six months and production will start.
