The white and Indian communities in Bulawayo have welcomed the government's move to establish dialogue with them to understand their challenges, saying this is set to strengthen their relations with the government.

Emerging from a closed door meeting with the Vice President, Phelekezela Mphoko, members of the white community applauded the exchange of ideas, saying this is set to change perceptions about them in relation to the government and the hand of reconciliation extended to them by President Robert Mugabe.

Those interviewed who included Mr Raymond Roth and Mrs Rose Richards commended the government's move has a lot of socio-economic benefits.

Briefing journalists after the meeting, Vice President Mphoko said he is happy that the white community is warming up to government's approach and a lot of business related issues are being attended too in the process.

Mphoko said the government is keen to know the issues that are affecting the business community so as to improve the investment climate in the country.

He further stated that the white community has been invited to join Zanu PF and be a part of the governing party so that their issues can be attended to even at party level.
