Today many of Zimbabwe’s sons and daughters provide their best thinking to other nations and Fortune 500 companies, but little opportunity to do so for their own nation.
Zimbabwe can become a high-performing tiger if we decide to need each other, and engage every Zimbabwean in the world in the business of building our nation.
This is something we need to do as a matter of urgency. We are a nation of exceptional entrepreneurial talent with significant human capital outside our borders, all of which can, along with our abundant natural resources, be leveraged for rapid economic growth should we choose to. As long as we continue pretending we do not need each other, Zimbabwe will not be able to succeed in a competitive global environment.
