Zimbabwe has lined up an International Convention on Economic Growth Strategy which will bring together a cross section of local and foreign think-tanks to converse on the country’s current experiences and map a way forward for the speedy realisation of Vision 2030. 

In a statement, Finance and Economic Development Minister, Professor Mthuli Ncube said the Indaba penciled for August will take a holistic approach to unpack issues impacting Zimbabwe’s growth trajectory, and draw recommendations for Government implementation.

He added that, the solutions are expected to be in line with broad pillars that include; informal sector development and poverty reduction; industrialisation and trade policy; public and private investments and creation of an enabling environment for business; monetary and exchange rate policy and fiscal policy reforms. 

This comes as various institutions including the International Monetary Fund and World Bank have hailed the country’s economic blue print, the National Development Strategy (NDS1).
