The Future of Zimbabwe Summit

Zimbabwe’s impoverished economy has enormous growth potential in the long term. The country has abundant natural resources and still has relatively strong infrastructure, although the latter is in need of repair. But today the country faces extensive poverty and malnutrition, as well as serious political risks. Investor enthusiasm about the power-sharing government has ebbed. When will the country be ready for a real recovery? Will Zimbabwe be a business hotspot in five years’ time, or will it take far longer? What are the prospects for reversing the brain drain? This high-level, one-day conference will offer a frank assessment from business leaders, Economist Group analysts, representatives of diaspora organisations and diplomats from a range of different viewpoints.
