Immovable Zanu PF confident on achieving Vision2030

10 Feb 2019

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA (ADV) – Zimbabwe’s ruling party, Zanu PF is adamant in achieving the upper middle income economy by 2030.

This came out when the ruling party’s Politburo met at the party headquarters in Harare recently in a continuation of the assembly convened last week, ZBC Online reported.

Announcing his vision last year, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe is going through the primary stages of a radical economic transformation that will witness the country becoming middle-income economy by 2030.

According to the World Bank, a middle-income economy is one with a gross national income ranging between US$1 005 and US$12 235 per capita.

Currently, the World Bank classifies Zimbabwe as a low-income economy.

Previously the World Bank referred to low-income and middle-income economies as developing economies but changed the nomenclature in 2016, citing lack of specificity in that term.

Botswana, South Africa, Algeria and Namibia are among African countries classified as middle-class economies.

“We are forging ahead with President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s economic thrust of delivering an upper middle income economy by 2030,” said Zanu PF Secretary for Administration, Dr Obert Mpofu.

“Our meeting further discussed how the party is going to implement the First Secretary’s vision. No one is going to starve in rural areas despite circumstances are pointing to e food shortages according to a Zimbabwe Vulnerability Assessment Committee Report.”

Five rural districts of Mutoko, Nyanga, Nkayi, Beitbridge and Umzingwane are among the country’s most food insecure areas.

President Mnangagwa is leading an aggressive realignment of the country’s economy through introducing far-reaching reforms and re-engagement with the international community.

Through his open for business campaign, authorities are opening investment opportunities to international and local investors who were previously reluctant to bring their money to Zimbabwe.
