The 2018 Harare Indaba



Resources 4 Africa, the organisers of the highly acclaimed Joburg Indaba, held the Inaugural Harare Indaba on investing in resources and mining in Zimbabwe, ton 26th March 2018 at the Johannesburg Country Club, Auckland Park, Johannesburg.

 

At this time of pending renewal and rejuvenation in Zimbabwe, the questions asked were:

 

How will the Zimbabwe economy and more specifically, mining industry, renew itself? 

 

What is changing in the country and what will this mean for the mining sector? 

 

What will it mean for investors?


The fresh conversation re-energized discussions about Zimbabwe as a mining investment destination.

 

The South African business and investment communities have a long history of doing business with Zimbabwe.  We were pleased to be able to bring right into our own back yard, a high level Zimbabwean delegation who came specifically to Johannesburg to brief the attendees on important issues such as:

 

Mining’s contribution towards regenerating the economy of Zimbabwe

What will be different now? Will there be certainty for investors?

Is Zimbabwe now a worthwhile mining investment destination?

Business Leaders’ views on Zimbabwe as a mining investment destination

Where is the new opportunity?  What makes you optimistic now about the Zimbabwe environment? What challenges do you still face?  What advice can you give to new investors?  Do you plan to invest further?

 

The Senior Delegation from Zimbabwe included:

 

Honourable Minister Winston Chitando, Minister of Mines & Mining Development, Zimbabwe

Honourable Temba P. Mliswa, Chairperson, Mines & Energy Portfolio Committee

 

The Harare Indaba also provided investors and fund managers with the opportunity to engage in a private session face to face with the Zimbabwe delegation in the afternoon.
