The results of the first expo, held in October 2018, were satisfactory enough to continue to go for a second edition this year. Increasing interest to participate, especially interest coming from Zimbabwean horticulture companies, is expected to make the exhibition grow this year.

Around 50 existing and start-up growers registered themselves already in the past six months. With currently about 100 flower growers in Zimbabwe, the association is all set to become one of the leading forces within the Zimbabwean floriculture industry.

On 8 May, a stakeholders meeting organised by EFGAZ will be held in the Rainbow Towers Hotel. The purpose of the get together is to discuss several important topics, among others, the challenges, threats and opportunities of the Zimbabwean horticulture sector and issues with regards to the recent monetary policies on the handling of export proceeds.
