ZIMBABWE Information and Communication Technologies (ZICT) says the information and communications technology (ICT) sector has potential to create 40 000 jobs as it is one of the fastest growing sectors.

“While all the other sectors of Zimbabwe’s economy experience a period of extreme difficulties, the ICT sector presents a tremendous opportunity for economic growth. Without a doubt, ICT is a critical foundation upon which the Zimbabwean economic recovery will occur,” chairperson, Jacob Mutisi, said.

“To ensure this potential, all parties including the government of Zimbabwe must uphold their responsibilities to ensure healthy market-based relationships, where parties both compete and cooperate. Make no mistake; the ICT industry sector is strong and economically healthy. The ICT sector has the potential to create plus or minus 40 000 new jobs if it participates in all current and future infrastructure development.”  Read More
