The Local Government Investment Conference(LOGIC 2018) held under the theme, Local Authorities: Ready for investment took place at Zimbabwe’s International Trade Fair (ZITF) Exhibition Centre in Bulawayo from 16 to 18 October 2018. Holding the conference in Bulawayo often dubbed, “The City of Kings” was not coincidental as Bulawayo is the country’s 2nd largest city and has been the industrial and major transport hub for Southern Africa before Zimbabwe entered a period of economic depression. The theme therefore resonates well with the aspirations of the city in general and the new government’s thrust in particular, especially the “Zimbabwe is Open for Business” mantra..
