THE Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) says it will be rolling out engagement sessions with exhibitors, buyers and key stakeholders following the postponement of its prime trade showcase due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
On Tuesday, the Government announced the move to defer the ZITF, which was scheduled for April 21 to 25, as well as this year’s national independence celebrations. Both were scheduled for Bulawayo next month. The cancellation of national events and public gatherings is part of comprehensive measures adopted by Government to avert the spread of the deadly pandemic into the country.
“The ZITF company aligns itself with the Government’s bold and decisive steps to protect citizens and visitors. As a tourism partner, ZITF is duty-bound to reciprocally act responsibly and take all responsible steps to promote and maintain safe and healthy conditions at our events and venues,” said ZITF Company in a statement yesterday.
