President Mnangagwa has commissioned an industrial park established by the Midlands State University (MSU) in Gweru.
The propose of the park is aimed at achieving the Second Republic’s vision of growing the economy.
Meanwhile, the industrial park which is a growth of MSU’s Innovation Hub will employs over 100 people in a textiles enterprise, chemicals production and the manufacture of face masks and hand sanitisers in the wake of Covid-19, with more industries in the pipeline.
Speaking during the ceremony, President Mnangagwa said the Second Republic was making universities centres of innovation and technology.
Quoting President Mnangagwa, “In all the developed countries, which we call the First World, the route to their development are their universities.”
It is important to note that the MSU’s industrial park was ideally placed to take advantage of the thriving cotton farming in the Midlands Province and add value to cotton lint, which is being exported in its raw form rather than as processed and manufactured products.
