Representatives of 20 local companies from the Manicaland chapter of the Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce, will this week tour the industrial area of Guangzhou Province in China, to explore business opportunities. The tour would involve high profile business meetings to discuss joint venture opportunities and distributorships.
ZNCC Manicaland region manager, Ms Perpetual Guwila, said the tour would take place from November 20 to 30.
"We were initially invited to the Business Expo, which commenced early this month but we failed to attend that event. This time we are taking 20 companies that are interested in starting business synergies with Asian markets," he said.
The tour would also provide delegates an opportunity to comment on and contribute to a new business governance code for Zimbabwean business people.
Ms Guwila said although business principles might be the same for all sectors of the two countries, there may be differences in the challenges faced in implementing them in the private, public and state owned enterprises.
"The tour in this industrial area is expected to be interactive as it will deal with creating business opportunities. We hope that by tackling business issues in this way, delegates would have something to take back to their organisation for immediate implementation," he said.
