Zimbabwe’s infrastructure needs rehabilitation.  The 2019 Cyclone Idai caused significant infrastructural damage in the areas around Chimanimani and Chipinge. The government is in the process of rebuilding the road network. While the government has rehabilitated the main east-west highway with funding from the Development Bank of Southern Africa, there is an urgent need to rehabilitate the busy Beitbridge to Chirundu highway as it is the main trade route linking the southern ports of South Africa to Zimbabwe and other Southern African Development Community (SADC) states.

Leading Sub-Sectors

The transport sub-sectors of road and rail continue to suffer from a lack of investment. Prospects exist in upgrading the roads and rail networks to improve the movement of goods to the markets, both domestically and internationally.


Opportunities exist for foreign construction machinery manufacturers and related parts and equipment to provide road and rail construction machinery and equipment in the form of either selling to local construction companies or renting and leasing. Opportunities also exist for American companies to sell rolling stock to the National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ).
