Bulawayo-based industrialist, Busisa Moyo has been appointed the Zimbabwe Trade Fair Company board chairman effective 13 March 2020, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce said in a statement this week.

“Mr Busisa Moyo takes over from Ms Ruth Ncube whose tenure of office came to an end last year.

Currently, he is the Chief Executive Officer of United Refineries Limited and a member of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Board,” read part of the statement.

In picking Moyo for the position the Minister of Industry and Commerce, Dr Sekai Nzenza considered his business experience and expects him to turn around the international trade promotion parastatal into a more effective vehicle for engaging regional and international markets.

“The Minister is confident (that) Busisa Moyo’s business acumen and experience will be resourceful in re-positioning, modernizing & transforming ZITF into a formidable regional & international player,” said the ministry.

The new chairman also holds a Global Executive Masters degree in Business Administration from IESE Business School (Spain). Moyo has served as the Oil Expressers Association of Association chairman, First Capital Bank non-executive director and Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries (CZI) president.

The ministry retained the old board members as it did in November 2016 when it appointed Ncube.
