The Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce (ZNCC) otherwise known as the voice of business is holding it’s annual congress in Victoria Falls from today up to Friday. Techzim is a proud sponsor and partner because we understand that forums like these are important to the development of a thriving economy. This is why we host events like the Broadband Economy Conference, to get local business leaders in one room to deliberate on what opportunities exist right here and right now before we become futuristic as the tendency is at some events.
We are live streaming the ZNCC congress right here on Techzim. Business and business conferences in particular is a bore to a lot of people including business people themselves. However, this must not be so- business affects all of us and we must calculate a culture of participation in whatever business dialogue that is close to us. Here is why:
The voice of business is listened to by government
The congress guest of honour is Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Other participants are the Minister of Finance, the Minister of Industry and Commerce, the RBZ Govenor the Speaker of Parliament and other cabinet ministers. This shows you how much influence business actually has. Whoever the government listens to, you better listen to too.
For now, this is the only reason I will give you particularly because the theme of the conference particularly speaks of policy. Policy does not just affect the businesses themselves but it has a bearing on you and I. So to watch the live stream follow this link or go to the Techzim Facebook Page.
