Harare (New Ziana) –President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday re-assured the nation that the country will soon turn the corner and achieve prosperity through continued hard work.
Currently on his annual leave, President Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe was poised to rise again.
“Zimbabweans, prosperity for our great nation is just around the corner. Through hard work and sheer force of will, we will rise again,” he tweeted.
President Mnangagwa has already declared 2022 a year of growth, highlighting that this would be achieved through increased emphasis on improving efficiencies, guaranteeing a stable political and socio-economic environment.
The Second Republic is implementing several strategies to transform the country into an upper-middle-income economy by 2030 with vastly improved standards of living for the majority.
Zimbabwe’s economy has since the turn of the millennium struggled under the yoke of Western imposed sanctions, mismanagement and corruption under the previous administration.
But, the Second Republic has swiftly departed from the policies and habits of the previous administration by instituting robust measures, such as dealing with corruption, which has resulted in several top government officials being arrested and tried.
The new dispensation has also departed from the isolationist policies of the previous administration by scrapping the retrogressive indigenisation laws, opening up the country for business with all nations around the world.
It has also embarked on unprecedented locally funded infrastructure development across various sectors, including energy and transport with the developments expected to anchor economic growth towards vision 2030.
Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube has predicted robust economic growth for this year, spurred by higher mineral output and prices as well as good management of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Growth in agriculture, construction, as well as accommodation and food services (tourism) sector, would spur the projected 5.5 percent economic growth.
The World Bank recently concurred with the forecast although predicting a lower growth rate of 4.3 percent.
