President, Chamber of Mines Zimbabwe, Winston Chitando - The country had efficient systems in place and was open for investment. While potential exists for further beneficiation, it must be stressed that some products are already being beneficiated locally. Platinum Producers Association looking at developing a refinery. However, currently the volumes do not justify the investment in beneficiation.


His Excellency, Vice President of Zimbabwe Honourable John Nkomo – upstream and downstream exploitation of vast resources remain low, modern technology is required to achieve this. Skills flight remains a big challenge. Gvt intends to resuscitate the State mining companies to augment private sector production

Nigel Chanakira, Founder & Director, AfrAsia Kingdom Zimbabwe-While deposits have increased, the levels are still far below where they ought to be. People are still reluctant to save their money in banks. Banks are lending, particularly the local banks (mining gets its fair share of loans, but infrastructure does not). However asset quality has deteriorated. Liquidity will improve with new capital requirements, but a liquid money market needs to be re-established (issuance of Treasury Bills).
