Japanese Ambassador to Zimbabwe Toshiyuki Iwado urged President Mnangagwa’s Government to fight corruption because it prevents economic growth.
Iwado also hailed measures being implemented by President Mnangagwa’s administration to revive Zimbabwe’s economy. He made the remarks yesterday during an interview with Zimpapers Television Network following the recent visit by a 15-member Japanese business delegation. Said Iwado:
Zimbabwe is a great nation full of natural resources, the country has great potential. It has faced a lot of challenges and the new administration should work hard and implement all its policies and if this is done it will see the economy being revived. The new administration needs to be given enough time and an opportunity to implement a lot of things, among others the ease of doing business to attract new local and international investors. The Government should put in place more measures to eradicate corruption. Yes, there is no country without corruption, but the Government should put more effort to eradicate it because it hinders efforts to revive the economy.
