This year’s edition of the Chitungwiza Trade Fair roars to life today with organisers expecting to lure investors into the dormitory town.
The annual trade fair which promotes Chitungwiza-based firms was organised by Chitungwiza Publicity Association and will run until Saturday.

The four-day event is running under the theme: “Marketing and Networking in Chitungwiza.” In an interview, Chitungwiza Publicity Association director Mr Lexcy Mrewa said over 25 companies will be exhibiting.

“This time the trade fair has become bigger and much better and over 25 reputable companies will be showcasing their staff and services,” he said. “We anticipate to lure investors who can bring more development to the town.

“The main thrust of this fair is also to promote business opportunities within Chitungwiza and also expose other potential goods and services beyond Chitungwiza.”

Mr Mrewa said the town had companies which were producing on a large scale and residents needed to be aware of their existence.

“We have various local companies who explored not only the Zimbabwe market, but now Africa and beyond,” he said. “Some of them include Pure Drop cooking oil, Chibuku and Energy peanut butter. It is these gems that we want to highlight.

“Sometimes because some of our people are not aware of available services and products in this town they go elsewhere to get the same products and services.”

Chitungwiza acting mayor Councillor Lovemore Maiko is expected to officiate at the event. The fair, established in 2009, returned last year after a two-year hiatus due to financial constraints.
