via Zimbabwe plans to export labour abroad 16 November 2014
MINES and Mining Development Deputy Minister Fred Moyo on Wednesday said the government plans to export labour in a bid to boost revenue.
Moyo was speaking at a fund-raising dinner held by the Zimbabwe School of Mines.
He said the school must reflect on how it can sell skills abroad to boost the country’s strained coffers.
“The school must reflect on how it can lead in pioneering a structure where it can export skills to the region in the same way that other countries export consumable goods,” he said.
”The school must have this awareness and move immediately to position itself to support the government’s espoused vision.”
Moyo’s statement comes a few weeks after Zanu PF national chairman urged Zimbabwe to emulate the example set by Cuba in exporting skilled labour abroad in a bid to boost the country’s dwindling revenue.
