President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday said Bulawayo will hold more national events as he opened the Zim trade Annual Exporters conference in the city.
The conference which ends on Friday, is being held at the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair grounds.
Mnangagwa who was guest of honour at the conference was accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister Sibusiso Moyo and Industry Minister Mangaliso Ndlovu.
He noted that the conference was being held in Bulawayo for the first time which he said should be continued with other national events.
“I applaud the fact that this is the first time this forum is being held in Bulawayo, which is befitting, given that the city is an industrial hub and special economic zone,” said Mnangagwa.
‘We look forward to more national meetings, events and conferences being hosted at this, our second largest city.”
Mnangagwa flew back to Harare soon after officially opening the conference.
