  2. Challenges at Beitbridge.
  3. History of the Beitbridge Border post.

Jonas said there is need to add at least 3 other border crossings around Beitbridge to reduce congestion around the border.

Jonas said Beitbridge is an important economic zone, and should be prioritised in terms of opportunities.

Jonas said there is also a need to improve processes, through the employment of skilled executives and managers at the borders.
