AfCFTA to scale up Zimbabwe’s mining sector operations

Young Miners Foundation (YMF) is hosting a minerals value and trade expo dubbed Minerals Trade and Export Seminar as a discourse on the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).

The AfCFTA trade pact is the answer to seamless trade and strong supply chains in the mining sector.

In an interview with BusinessMail YMF President, Payne Kupfuwa said the foundation is hosting the seminar in a bid to embrace the opportunities presented by AfCFTA.

“The AfCFTA has certainly opened opportunities for young people and mining itself to develop and meet the US12 billion mining economy target by 2023.

“The free trade area will create a wider market for mining by establishing meaningful business and exchange ideas with different countries,” Kupfuwa said.

He also said that the seminar is bent on accessing the correct information from government, policy makers, law enforcement agents, custom clearing agents and all key players in mining.

“We will be discussing about value addition, mineral export, licensing, regional trade licensing and how do we observe trading leglisations,” Kupfuwa said.

The event will be graced by various business delegates from Zimtrade, Fidelity Printers, Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe exchange control amongst other stakeholders.

The seminar is going to be held on the 27th of March 2021 in Mutare at Courtald Theatre.
