SIVIO Institute is holding a two-day conference to assess the progress made under President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s leadership and launch an online tracking tool.
In a press statement released on Monday, SIVIO said:
The aim of the conference is to contribute towards Zimbabwe’s inclusive socio-economic transformation by measuring the government’s performance against its execution of policy reforms.
A major highlight of the conference will be the launch of an innovative public policy online tracking tool (zimcitizenswatch.org) that the Sivio Institute pioneered and has been working on.
The conference will also provide an opportunity for stakeholders to map opportunities for reform in 2019 in order to craft a policy agenda that will facilitate the revamping of the economy with a particular focus on agriculture, small-and-medium enterprises, and tourism as well as addressing broader governance challenges.
Several experts are expected to speak at the conference. These include former Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara, Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries president Sifelani Jabangwe, United Nations African Institute for Economic Development and Planning director Adebayo Olukoshi, Women Affairs ministry secretary Rudo Chitiga and Labour and Economic Development Research Institute of Zimbabwe director Godfrey Kanyenze.
