[Title] Zimbabwe Products Ready for Export

Trade in Zimbabwe is growing and the country is poised and ready to become more involved in the world of international trade. Various economic sectors in the country produce a variety of valuable commodities.

Business opportunities in Zimbabwe (https://tradezimbabwe.com/buying-from-zimbabwe-2/why-buy-from-zimbabwe/) abound.  International buyers are able to source Zimbabwean products on preferential terms under various Bilateral, Regional and Multi-lateral Trade Agreements. Goods wholly produced in Zimbabwe, or sufficiently processed or transformed, have preferential access in the following markets:  The European Union (EU) (http://exporthelp.europa.eu/thdapp/index.htm;jsessionid=249C6F1E5E6F778514927CFF57C51C2A?newLanguageId=EN)The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), The Southern African Development Community (SADC), and various developed countries (e.g. Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, and USA, among other markets): Zimbabwean products that satisfy the Rules of Origin criteria enjoy preferential tariff treatment (reduced customs duty) under the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP).

Zimbabwe has many products ready for export spanning through several economic sectors:

[H1] Tobacco:

Tobacco (https://tradezimbabwe.com/buying-from-zimbabwe-2/why-buy-from-zimbabwe/export-sectors/ trade in Zimbabwe is a major player in the world’s tobacco trade. In fact, tobacco has been Zimbabwe’s largest single agricultural export crop in the last decade with 99% of the produce internationally traded. Much of the tobacco grown in the country is of the flue-cured Virginia strain whilst smaller crops of burley and oriental variety are also grown.

[H2] Metal and semi precious metals:

The Great Dyke, a remarkable 550 km long geological body that runs across the centre of Zimbabwe, contains the world’s largest deposits of chrome. It also holds the second largest reserves of platinum as well as significant gold (http://www.miningreview.com/news/zimbabwe-s-gold-potential/),nickel and copper deposits, making the mining sector (http://www.chamberofminesofzimbabwe.com/economics/investor-information/) an important economic sector in Zimbabwe.

[H3] Clothing and Textiles:

There has been an influx of indigenous clothing manufacturers in Zimbabwe (http://www.investzim.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=253&Itemid=689over the past few years, and while only 10% of commodities are exported, there is a great deal of opportunity to develop this side of the industry. The Zimbabwean clothing worker is highly skilled and the textiles and clothing produced are of high standards and reasonable pricing, factors that would make it a competitive part of international trade.

[H4] Pharmaceuticals:

A wide range of local and international brands of pharmaceuticals (http://www.investzim.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=253&Itemid=689) are manufactured and marketed within Zimbabwe. Because of the mining economic sector, the country produces large amounts of metals such as chrome, nickel and platinum all of which can be used to produce pharmaceuticals. However, there is much room for development as most of these metals are exported in their raw state.

[H5] Chemicals:

The chemical industry (http://www.investzim.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=253&Itemid=689) in Zimbabwe develops a large range of products including fertilisers, pesticides, paints and varnishes, pharmaceuticals, cleansing products, perfumes and cosmetics.

[H6] Timber and Furniture:

Furniture manufacturing (http://www.investzim.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=253&Itemid=689) in Zimbabwe is one of the more established industries in the country, with a diverse and skilful range of products. Zimbabwean manufacturers produce a full range of furniture for the home, office and garden which are manufactured from wood, metal and plastic.
