Zimbabwe Business Network International (ZBNI) Communications Director Chipo Mkandla said the active participation during the ZBNI sponsored Business Networking Forum is evidence that this network is indeed a much needed service for Zimbabweans in the Diaspora. The Affirmative Action Group from Zimbabwe (AAG) gave attendees first hand information, answered questions on the Indigenization bill and challenged Zimbabweans in the Diaspora to make informed decisions and actively participate in the Zimbabwean economy. ZBNI, the business wing of ZimExpo is a platform for people to get more of this type of pertinent information, network, collaborate and share ideas.

We know that the Business Forums definitely bring added value and we appreciate the loyalty that our patrons have shown in support of our 10th Anniversary,”
