Economic Roundtable at Franscchoek Agenda

The specific agenda of the roundtable conference was to:

  • provide a space for key opinion leaders and role-players to openly discuss pertinent issues regarding the Zimbabwean economy.
  • think strategically about possible opportunities for recovery and gaps to be exploited that are currently unidentified.
  • open up the discussion on how the Diaspora can effectively play a role in rebuilding the economy in both the short and long term.
  • discuss modes and options for international support for the recovery process.


The roundtable created an opportunity for Zimbabweans in the Diaspora to:

  • critically assess the economic development of Zimbabwe since the inception of the inclusive government.
  • identify the existing challenges.
  • map out ways of engaging the Diaspora to contribute to the socio-economic recovery of the country.
