Adding to his series of global accolades collected in Europe over the past months, renowned sub-Saharan African business and infrastructure expert, Dr. Tinashe Manzungu has now been recognised with the Jamie Pajoel International (JPI) Business Award in Kigali, Rwanda.
The recognition came in light of Manzungu’s remarkable achievements in the field of infrastructural development and real estate business, on the sidelines of the 4th edition of the JPI conference recently held in East Africa. The conference centered around the theme: “Build to Last.”
In his acceptance speech, the director of the African Business Council urged fellow business experts in the private sector across the continent to remain vigilant and resolute in their efforts to contribute positively to Africa’s growth.
“I am deeply honoured to receive this award, and I feel compelled to inspire all business experts and leaders in the private sector to continue pushing for the growth of our economies across Africa,” he stated. “We hold a deep love for our Africa, and by collaborating hand in hand with our governments, we can accomplish remarkable feats and transform our economies. Let us endeavour to lead various projects that will attract both foreign direct investments and domestic direct investments.
“As African business leaders in the private sector, let us harness our abundant resources and add value to our products prior to trading. By viewing challenges as opportunities, we can construct a better version of our continent.”
Manzungu emphasised that the continent’s substantial population is already an advantage, presenting a significant market for products manufactured in Africa and he urged African businesspeople to capitalise on this opportunity.
The event drew attendance from diverse business experts, leaders of multinational corporations, and organisational heads from around the world.
Through his global connections, Manzungu has successfully attracted both domestic and foreign investors to his organisation, firmly believing in the power of partnerships over individualism.
