Thirty Zimbabwean exporters head for Lubumbashi in Democratic Republic of Congo

More than 30 companies from Zimbabwe are set to increase their product visibility and exports to the Democratic Republic of Congo, intending to take part in the ZimTrade-organised outward seller mission to Lubumbashi this month.

Lubumbashi is the third largest city in DRC, located on the country’s south-eastern border with Zambia, making it ideal for all types of freight. The proximity of Lubumbashi to Zimbabwe makes it easier and cheaper for local businesses to export goods and transport them either by air or road.

“Some of the low-hanging fruits in terms of potential products are processed foods, where Zimbabwe can ride on an advanced industry compared to Lubumbashi,” ZimTrade said in its latest newsletter. ZimTrade said the horticultural sector also provided huge opportunities for Zimbabwean farmers. Despite Zimbabwe producing some of  the top blueberries in Africa and beyond, some retailers in Lubumbashi are importing from elsewhere.
