Today, His Excellency The President of the Republic of Zimbabwe Cde E.D. Mnangagwa officially commissioned Allied Timbers Zimbabwe Forestry and Machinery Equipment in Mutare.The President was represented by the Minister of Defence, Security and War Veterans Hon O.C.Z Muchinguri-Kashiri

The equipment was procured through the Belarus Facility.This is the momentous culmination of sterling efforts by the Government in support of Allied Timbers Zimbabwe and indeed is also demonstrable support for the plantation timber value chain which has faced a number of challenges, natural and otherwise, over the past decades.

h. 5 x 400-Litre Rapid response Toyota Hilux trucks for urgent fire callouts at Estates.

The equipment, will certainly inject energy in the life blood of operations of Allied Timbers Zimbabwe and impact positively on the forest plantation sector in the following ways:
i. Positive developmental mentality and confidence in young people who aspire to join the forest sector and in foresters who owe the plantations to their graceful careers;
ii. Improved support for rural jobs at the forest plantations of Allied Timbers Zimbabwe;
iii. Improved fire protection of the planted timber resource in the forest sector since equipment is used jointly among timber growers;
iv. Improving access to rural communities since roads in plantations link up with rural land which is the principal catchment forest labour, and;
v. Of all benefits, improved carbon sequestration through many trees that are to be planted and safeguarded in the improved operations of Allied Timbers Zimbabwe.

The colourful event was attended by the Minister of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Hon N.M Ndhlovu, Minister for Manicaland Provincial Affairs and Devolution Hon Matsikenyere, Deputy Minister Foreign Affairs Hon D. Musabayana, PS for Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Mr M. Munodawafa, Deputy Minister Industry for the Republic of Belarus Mr D.

UNWTO Supports Zimbabwe To Measure Value Of Tourism

UNWTO commits to work with the Government of Zimbabwe to measure the importance of tourism for the country’s economy.

Zimbabwe has identified tourism as a central pillar of its National Development Strategy, (NDS 1, 2021-2025). To reflect this, UNWTO is now working with the government on the development of the country’s first Tourism Satellite Account (TSA). The TSA will measure tourism’s contribution to Zimbabwe’s GDP, as well as its size relative to other sectors, and the number of jobs it generates. It will also allow the government to measure the value of public and private investment related to the sector and the effect of international tourism on the country’s balance of payments.

Mr Munesushe Munodawafa, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry, said, “As we continue to invest in the recovery and re-development of tourism across Zimbabwe, we must be able to accurately measure the importance of tourism to the country’s economy. The development of the TSA is one of the key milestones for the sector under the NDS1 (2021-2025). This tool is critical to aid Government’s decision making and evidence-based policy formulation for a sustainable and resilient tourism sector post COVID-19.”
Elcia Grandcourt, UNWTO Director for Africa said, “We are delighted to work again with Zimbabwe in this important endeavour. We are committed to supporting the government in providing clear data that can help guide key decisions for tourism’s recovery and growth.”
The initiative forms part of the four-year Zimbabwe Destination Development Program, a technical assistance initiative supported by IFC, a member of the World Bank Group. It is being delivered by the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality, the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, and sponsored by the Government of Japan. The program supports the recovery of Zimbabwe’s tourism industry and aims to safeguard thousands of jobs amid a sharp decline in travel caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

On the 15th of June 2021 the Minister of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Hon N.M. Ndhlovu visited the projects which Zimparks is in partnership with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) at Hwange National Park, Makona Camp.

The Zimparks-IFAW partnership fosters financial support and technical expertise in the management of protected areas. The major objective is to protect biodiversity, conserve ecological processes and promote human livelihoods and well-being in the approximately four million-acre landscape that is a key to the Kavango Trans-Frontier Conservation Area (KAZA-TFCA).

IFAW has invested more than US $1 million in Hwange National Park towards infrastructure development, ranger training, tools and equipment, game water supply, capacitation of the Veterinary Unit and operational support.

One of the achievement of the partnership was the rehabilitation of a key artery in Hwange, the road linking Makona and Hwange Main Camp.The rehabilitated road has now enabled tourists to visit areas that were previously inaccessible by non-four wheel drive vehicles.

IFAW managed to construct four new houses for rangers, and an operation center. Pleasingly, community youths have been employed for the construction work.

The partnership also tackled the long-standing water management problem at Hwange National Park.

Other areas of work supported by the partnership include equipping Hwange National Parks workshop at the Main Camp with the tools required to maintain the vehicles it services across the Hwange Cluster and refresher training for its artisans.In addition the Veterinary Field Laboratory has received new equipment and drug supplies, improving veterinary support for Hwange National Parks dog unit and wildlife rescue efforts in the landscape.

Today the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority(ZTA) and the District Development Fund (DDF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Hwange. The partnership witnessed today is a milestone achievement which should help to identify strategic areas that facilitate tourism development and promotion in Zimbabwe.

This collaboration will augment Government’s thrust, which seeks to revive and grow the tourism sector in line with the National Tourism Recovery and Growth Strategy that was launched by the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, His Excellency Dr E.D. Mnangagwa in August 2020 following the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The initiative witnessed today will go a long way towards spreading the geographical tourism benefits in Zimbabwe. Access to the key source markets is as equally important as access within the destination. This new Falcon Air service to Hwange National Park, and its planned expansion into other National Parks and other tourism destinations which have hitherto not been connected will go a long way towards improving destination access in Zimbabwe.

The Minister of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Hon N.M Ndhlovu urged the tourism Marketing Executives being jointly hosted by the ZTA and DDF on this inaugural flight to aggresively promote the new packages, in both local and international source markets.

I know The Ministry has made an effort by waving VAT on various products for local tourists, but may you also consider our entry fees and accommodation charges for your National Parks Facilities, they are still rather prohibitive to a certain extent. Let's have a drive to promote local tourism by making it affordable and I'm certain the healing process for the sector will gain a lot of traction!
Why not opening Hotels and Restaurants for sittings this industry is the most affected
