HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe's new government pledged on Thursday to re-engage with international lenders, curb spending and attract investors in order to revive its battered economy.
In the first budget since last month's removal of long-time ruler Robert Mugabe, Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa said the government would amend indigenisation laws, limiting a 51 percent local ownership requirement to just the platinum and diamond sectors.
