GOVERNMENT believes the private sector is critical in ensuring that the country’s participation at Expo 2020 Dubai is a success.
This was said by Zimbabwe’s Commissioner-General for Expo 2020 Dubai Ambassador Mary Mubi yesterday on the sidelines of a workshop in Kadoma.
“As we work towards Vision 2030, the best way to augment our participation at Expo 2020 Dubai is to work with the private sector, Government ministries and various sectors so that we do it in a holistic way, but also showcasing our history and that which gives us the comparative advantages in many areas,” said Ambassador Mubi.
Ambassador Mubi believes the expo would be a unique opportunity to promote curated stalls, focusing on the promotion of original local products.
Zimbabwe has been offered a dedicated kiosk at no cost, and will augment pavilion already allocated.
Government says the thrust of the kiosk is on promotion of ethical shopping or consumerism.
“Therefore, organisations and individuals who believe that their products qualify are requested to submit their expressions of interest together with a comprehensive list, briefly describing each product they plan to sell, the price and material used to make the product,” said the organisers. They want potential exhibitors submit proposals to Ambassador Mubi by July 26, 2019.
All correspondences should be addressed to the Commissioner General Expo 2020 Dubai, First Floor, Charter House, Corner Samora Machel and Julius Nyerere, Harare.
