ZimTrade, the county’s trade development and promotion body, is once again coordinating the participation of Zimbabwean companies in this year’s Zambia Agricultural and Commercial Show (ZACS), to take place in Lusaka from 27 July-1 August.ZACS is a multi-sectoral event, which showcases agricultural machinery and implements, industrial equipment, plastic products, forestry products, livestock, poultry products, horticulture, motor vehicles, trading, financial services, as well as fishing products, among others. In 2015, the event attracted over 1 000 exhibitors from 23 countries, which included: Germany; Israel; Pakistan; China; India; United States of America; Tanzania; Zimbabwe; Mozambique and Ghana, among others. Participation at this year’s event is aimed at further exposing Zimbabwean products to regional buyers and international buyers as well as to generate export orders. Last year, ZimTrade successfully coordinated the participation of 26 companies in the ZACS Show and deals worth more than US$1 million were clinched.
ZimTrade conducted the Zambian market research in April 2015 to establish the export potential of Zimbabwean products and services. – Herald
