"For UNDP, the National Export Strategy is a useful initiative and document as it provides a framework for our poverty reduction and sustainable development work."
"The Asian Development Bank sees the National Export Strategy as a key reference to guide the country’s efforts in expanding productive capabilities in strategic export sectors and thus to create jobs and reduce poverty, which is a focus of ADB’s country partnership strategy."
“The NES process helped us to clearly identify key issues that prevent us from exploiting export opportunities in emerging markets as well as in OECD economies. Its implementation should enable the private sector to best respond to buyers’ requirements as well as to strategically climb the value-added ladder. The involvement of funding partners and buyers into the process introduces a concrete element of reality that will help securing implementation.”
“UNIDO would like to express its full support for this comprehensive and inclusive strategy and stands ready to assist Zimbabwe with implementation. The strategy’s detailed approach to the Cotton-to-Clothing value chain, in particular the most capital-intensive segments, provide UNIDO with key entry points to assist with the re-industrialization of Zimbabwe. ”
“The COMESA Secretariat is pleased to be part of the Zimbabwe Cotton-to-Clothing value chain strategy development, the value chain that has always been a priority for economic transformation in the region.”
