Zimbabwe’s total horticulture exports for the first half of the year have gone beyond 30 million U.S. dollars as firms benefit from government incentives, bumper harvest and reopening of global markets, local publication ZBC News reported.



According to official data released by local trade promotion body, ZimTrade, the growth in exports represents a 6.5 percent increase from 31.8 million U.S. dollars during the same period last year to 33.9 million.


Players in the sector attribute the grown in exports earnings to a horticulture recovery plan, financing schemes and technical assistance from government and development partners.


Major contributors of revenues during the period under review include tea, macadamia nuts, citrus, fresh flowers and leguminous vegetables.
