Zimbabwe Suffering From Negative Publicity – Pan African Delegates

A Pan African business delegation visiting Zimbabwe has said that the country is wrongly perceived by the outside world, a ZBC article reports.

The delegates are reported to have urged the government to come up with strategies that ensure that tourists and investors have memorable experiences when they visit.

Dr. Babalola Omoniyi and Brigadier General Dr. Wallace Williams, who attended the just-ended Pan African Business Summit in Gweru, said experiences on the ground are not tallying with what they expected. Dr. Omonoyi said:

My wife told me before I left Nigeria that I should be extra careful when going out during the night but I am surprised that here I am, I do not even know the colour of a police uniform or even a soldier.

Dr. Williams also said that he is excited by the transformation in the economic environment. He said:

The country is really open for business and I am excited at the various strides the country has made in improving the economic environment.
