The Zimbabwean economy experienced continuous decline over the last decade.
The inclusive government has therefore adopted stimulating investment as one of the key strategies for the restoration of economic growth and stability. The objective is to increase investment from the current level of 4% to at least 25% of GDP. The government has therefore identified the need to create an efficient and enabling investment environment so as to enhance a positive supply response.
The Government has therefore given its commitment to creating a conducive investment environment by guaranteeing security of investment and crafting of investor friendly policies that are also consistent and predictable as well as allowing market forces to play. In this regard the Zimbabwe Investment Authority is in the process of transforming into a fully fledged one-stop-shop for investment. The idea is to streamline decision making processes in key institutions that deal with investors so as to speed up the start up of business and investment projects.
