On 26 January 2018, QG sponsored an exclusive investor lunch for the new President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, H.E. Emmerson Mnangagwa. The President, together with his delegation came to Switzerland to attend the World Economic Forum’s 48th Annual Meeting which took place from January 23-26, 2018 in Davos.
The exclusive lunch was attended by over 40 senior delegates from some of Switzerland’s most leading companies including Deutsche Bank, ABB, Swiss Re, Novartis, Siemens, Lonrho and Glencore. QG’s Head of Research, Prof. Mthuli Ncube moderated the discussion and delivered a presentation on Quantum Global’s recently developed guide for investors in Africa, the Africa Investment Index.
The lunch event goes hand in hand with the government’s plans to create an investor friendly environment in Zimbabwe. President Mnangagwa, who took office in November 2017 is prioritising embracing the international economy, modernising infrastructure and attracting further investments.
To conclude the event, Prof. Ncube presented President Mnangagwa with a gift; a handmade traditional Swiss cow bell handcrafted in Rorschacherberg.
