A guide to trading with Zimbabwe

There are a wide variety of benefits and opportunities to trading with Zimbabwe, as mentioned in previous blog posts. A comprehensive list of export-ready products are listed here 

The Trade Zimbabwe export and trade portal has been established to facilitate trade, providing guidelines to overcome some of the problems and difficulties you may face when doing business in Zimbabwe. All the information you may require from initial research to Government policy on trade to actual legal requirements is available through this portal.

Identifying your source

Pre-requisites have been assembled for foreign investors to join hands with local entrepreneurs to do business in Zimbabwe to cater for the domestic, regional and international markets.

Fill in the ‘Propose To Buy’ Form and let Trade Zimbabwe identify potential suppliers for you.

It also contains basic ideas to help enterprises in planning and developing their export business on a viable and sustainable basis.

Trade Zimbabwe Services include:

  • Market Intelligence
  • Trade Information
  • Export Development (Capacity Building & Coaching)
  • Export Promotion
  • Systemic Competitiveness (Advocacy & Trade Facilitation)

Trade Agreements

The Trade Zimbabwe portal offers links and information on the various trade agreements, trade regulations and trade policies. (It is worth checking this as the Zimbabwean Government is continuously reforming its legal, regulatory, economic and diplomatic frameworks to encourage business, improve the ease of doing business, to generate opportunities for entrepreneurs and enterprises on the domestic, regional and international fronts.)

Setting Up

The Zimbabwean Investment Authority (ZIA) provides comprehensive information on the establishment and cost of doing business with Zimbabwe, legislation regulations including visa requirements in an Zimbabwean Investment Guide.

Tax legislation and information is available on the ZIMRA website.
