President Mnangagwa said , “Going forward the tripartite forum should provide timely progress reports to accelerate the formulation and implementation of appropriated responsive policies,”

The President added that , “Issues relating to fairness, transperancy, confidentiality, and objectivity in the implementation of performance contracts must be enhanced through partnerships with independent experts for consultancy.”

“The above measures should be entered on the second republics philosophy, values and work ethics as we continue to build the Zimbabwe we all want overall appropriate sector reform measures that suit our local environment whilst spurring production and effective use of public resources among other aspects should be decisively followed through by all in leadership.”
