President Mnangagwa held candid discussions with captains of industry, retailers, bankers and consumers with a view to locate challenges and possible solutions to problems faced in production of goods and services.The no holds-barred discussions were held from 0830hrs to about 1230hrs at State House in Harare.
Journalists only covered President Mnangagwa’s keynote address, before being asked to leave the interactive session between Government and business.
The media were then invited for the closing remarks by the President.
“We had a very frank exchange of views which in the end separated boys from men and girls from ladies,” said President Mnangagwa.
“The views that have been put forward, were all important, some were excellent, some were very good, some were good and others were fair and few were bad.
“But all those categories of views are useful. We can only move when we interrogate excellent views as against the bad views, the fair views as against the very good ones; all ought to be interrogated to find a common path.” — The Herald.
