‘Towns should modernise to attract business’

            Chadzamira commissions newly-surfaced West Road
CHIREDZI – The Minister of State
for Masvingo Provincial Affairs, Ezra Chadzamira recently commissioned Chiredzi
Town Council’s newly-surfaced 2.4km West Road and called for improved urban
areas to attract investment.
A total of $590 240.55 was
used to tar the road.
Chadzamira said construction
of road infrastructure should enable council to redesign its urban landscape
towards setting up a modern city.
“I urge Chiredzi Town
Council and all other local authorities to have a serious desire for the
creation of an enabling environment to allow businesses to grow. I urge you as
council to be competitive institutions in attracting investors by improving the
ease of doing business and by riding on the current legislative changes that
the 9th Parliament is putting in place,” said Chadzamira
“The commissioning of
this road, in my opinion, is symbolic of the potential that Chiredzi and indeed
Masvingo have in terms of becoming a transport and economic hub linking
Zimbabwe and the region to foreign markets. Let us think outside the box and
dream big as we envision the opportunities offered in this region.
He said the province had to
deliver its fair contribution towards the national goal of a middle income
economy by year 2030.
“We have a huge task to
deliver an $8 billion dollar provincial economy by 2030 in fulfillment of the
National Vision that Zimbabwe becomes a prosperous and upper middle income
economy,” he said.
Addressing the same gathering,
Chiredzi Town Council chairperson, Gibson Hwende said their aim was the
attainment of municipal status by 2023.
“Apart from the roads, council
is also doing water and sewer as well as solid waste management projects as
reported in our district and provincial plans. We are receiving Public Sector
Investment Programme funds every year that is helping us to undertake some of
these projects and wish to thank central government for that,” said Hwende.
