Information Communication Technology and Courier Services deputy minister, Jenfan Muswere, has said that the achievement of vision 2030 requires concerted efforts and collaboration of all stakeholders.
Vision 2030, enunciated by president Emmerson Mnangagwa, envisions an upper-middle income Zimbabwe.
Gone are the days when parliamentary portfolio committee meetings used to be turfs for political grandstanding and perceived witch hunting.
The role of ICTs in fostering economic transformation cannot be over-emphasised. As you are aware, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has enunciated a vision which aims to ensure that Zimbabwe becomes an upper-middle income economy by 2030.
ICTs are a key catalyst in attaining vision 2030 as they are pivotal in enabling socio-economic development. This, therefore, calls for concerted efforts and collaboration in a bid to create an enabling environment for the generality of Zimbabweans who we serve.
He said that the aim is to increase mobile broadband population in the country from the current 84 % to 100% before 2030.
His remarks were supported by Potraz director-general, Gift Machengete, who said:
As a nation, our growth and development is embedded in our collaborative efforts. As a country, our progress is dependent upon our ability to work together.
