WASHINGTON DC —
A high-powered delegation of business executives and top government officials has arrived in Washington DC to link Zimbabweans in the diaspora with captains of industry and commerce in an effort to revive the Zimbabwe economy.
Esau Mavindidze of the Zimbabwe Business Network International, which is hosting the delegation with Zimbabwe Expo Business Consortium, said the executives are drawn from the Zimbabwe Chamber of Commerce and Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries.
The 12-member delegation is led by Higher Education Secretary, Washington Mbidzo, whose ministry has crafted the Zimbabwe Human Capital Project, designed to engage the diaspora community in initiating economic development back home.
Mavindidze told VOA the delegation will hold various meetings with Zimbabweans in Washington DC, Atlanta-Georgia and Dallas, Texas, within the next four days.
