Monday, 17 July, 2017, 08 : 00 AM [IST]
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has opened its new Holiday Inn property in the Zimbabwean city of Mutare.

The franchised property, owned by African Sun Limited, is located in the heart of the city centre, with significant business activity across the forestry and citrus farming industries.

India and Zimbabwe have good bilateral relations and strong economic cooperation with trade interest in various sectors, such as agriculture.

Mutare is located in the diamond mining region of Zimbabwe, and is close to the Tete Province, a coal mining region in Mozambique.

Pascal Gauvin, chief operating officer, India, Middle East and Africa, IHG, said, “Africa represents huge untapped opportunities for a variety of industries across the region.”

“We’re thrilled to announce the opening in Mutare, as we believe that it will further support business travel between India and Africa,” he added.

“We are especially proud to continue working with established partners such as African Sun Limited, who also own several other properties with us. We are excited to begin welcoming guests to the Holiday Inn Mutare,” Gauvin said.

Edwin T Shangwa, managing director, African Sun Limited, said, “We are happy to be partnering with IHG once again.”

“We have successfully launched two Holiday Inn hotels together, and have seen great success across both properties,” he added.

“Now that the hotel has opened its doors, it will benefit equally from IHG’s global distribution systems, strong brand portfolio and loyalty programmes,” Shangwa said.
