AGRICULTURE remains the basis of the Zimbabwean economy. If we get agriculture right, then we are on the right track to get everything else right: food security and surplus, industrialisation, exports growth, job creation, value creation, growth of the rural economy and growth of the overall economy.
Regional seed manufacturer, Seed Co Limited says listing of its regional operations on the Botswana Stock Exchange (BSE) will be concluded in a month’s time, after shareholders approved the proposal yesterday.
SEED CO International Limited is expected to list on the local bourse and Botswana Stock Exchange (BSE) soon as the company partially unbundles to help fund its regional operations, NewsDay has learnt.
The proposed partial unbundling of Seed Co Limited and the subsequent separate listing of its regional operations on the Botswana Stock Exchange (BSE), will allow the company to pursue its regional expansion projects as it will be backed by the availability of solid hard currency funding.
