Ploughing back into Zimbabwe
Zim Achievers USA is following on from the recently held South African and UK editions that focused on ‘ploughing back’ into Zimbabwe and investing in its growth.

ZAA Chairman, Conrad Mwanza said that it is an opportune time for the diaspora to play a huge role in rebuilding Zimbabwe.
“Zimbabweans are innovative and very talented and l believe that we(the people) are the countries biggest asset.”

“There is alot of potential in Zimbabwe.The investment opportunities are there however, we need to work together to rebuild our nation and revitalise the economy,” Mwanza added.
WorldRemit – Global sponsor
