President Emmerson Mnangagwa has approved the holding of the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) in July.
The development was announced by Dr Sibanda the Secretary for Industry and Commerce in a letter to the chairman of the ZITF which is dated 21 April 2021. Reads the letter:
Please be advised that the President has approved that Zimbabwe International Trade Fair be held during the period 20. to 23. July 2021.
The ZITF is one of the events that were in doubt due to the coronavirus trend in the country.
Mguni postulated that all national gatherings should be suspended to make sure that people are safe from the novel coronavirus adding that ZITF is the riskiest because people coming from all corners of the globe, will be travelling to showcase at the event.
This year, the Independence Day celebrations were held at the State House, unlike the previous years when they were held in open stadiums.
At the ZITF event, companies are presented with an opportunity to exhibit their products and, therefore, promotes trade and investment through innovation and value-addition.
