Government has made it clear that the focus is on ensuring sustainable growth and business minds say the infrastructure sector is poised to register significant growth.

Economist Kipson Gundani noted: “The Zimbabwe economic growth has mainly been driven by primary sectors like agriculture and mining. One sector we will see major growth is the infrastructure sector and we are also likely to see resurgence of the tourism sector.”

Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer, Mr Christopher Mugaga is upbeat about 2022 describing it as year of consolidation and significant growth driven by the mining industry.

“Prospects are high for 2022. What we need to do is to harvest on the low hanging fruits which we have seen growth. In the mining sector we have witnessed significant increase in gold deliveries,” he said.

This year the country is targeting to grow the economy by 5,5%.
