    Zimbabwe is blessed with natural resources. It has the third largest reserves of platinum in the world and a wealth of other mineral resources, including diamonds, gold, chrome, nickel and coal. Agriculture, once the backbone of the economy, suffered during the 2000’s but has also shown recent solid growth and considerable potential remains. Tourism, financial services, transport and retail are also important economic drivers. The country has one of the best developed financial services industries in Africa, with a well established local investment base. The first stock exchange was established in 1896 and today the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange is one of the larger sub-Saharan markets. Zimbabwe’s main exports are diamonds, gold, chrome, nickel and coal.
