Government.EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Zimbabwe experienced a deteriorating economic and social environment since 2000 caused by illegal economic sanctions imposed by the Western countries. To guide national development for these five years. Source documents recognize the continued existence of the illegal economic sanctions. Private Sector and other stakeholders. subversive activities and internal interferences 8 . leading to the overall decline in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 50% in 2008. Government has crafted a new economic blue print known as the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio- Economic Transformation (Zim Asset). After the landslide victory by the ZANU PF Party in the 31st July 2013 harmonised elections. the Party was given the mandate to govern the country for a five (5) year term. This economic blue print was developed through a consultative process involving political leadership in the ruling ZANU PF Party. This resulted in a deep economic and social crisis characterised by a hyperinflationary environment and low industrial capacity utilization.

9 . The execution of this Plan will be guided by the following Mission: “To provide an enabling environment for sustainable economic empowerment and social transformation to the people of Zimbabwe”. hence Zim Asset’s focus will be on the full exploitation and value addition to the country’s own abundant resources. The implementation of Zim Asset will be underpinned and guided by the Results Based Management (RBM) System and will be used as a basis for the macroeconomic budgetary framework by Treasury. commencing with the 2014 fiscal year. The Vision of the Plan is “Towards an Empowered Society and a Growing Economy”. Zim Asset is a cluster based Plan. reflecting the strong need to fully exploit the internal relationships and linkages that exist between the various facets of the economy.from hostile countries. These clusters are as follows:  Food Security and Nutrition. This therefore calls for the need to come up with sanctions busting strategies.

outcomes as well as outputs. success factors and drivers have been identified as implementation pillars. Zim Asset is set out in Matrix form to ensure the institutionalization and mainstreaming of a results based culture in the public sector in conformity with the Results Based Management System.  Infrastructure and Utilities. To buttress the aforementioned clusters. Social Services and Poverty Eradication. To ensure the successful implementation of Zim Asset. For easy conceptualisation. and  Value Addition and Beneficiation. comprehension and appreciation of the key result areas. initiatives identified under each Cluster will be implemented immediately to yield rapid results (Quick Wins) in the shortest possible time frame (October 2013 – December 2015). Under this arrangement. Governance and Performance Management. two sub-clusters were also developed namely Fiscal Reform Measures and Public Administration. key strategies. 10 .

have been identified as financing mechanisms: tax and non tax revenue. 11 . In order to ensure that the Plan is fully funded. re-engagement with the international and multilateral finance institutions and other financing options.with the other deliverables targeted up to December 2018. accelerated implementation of Public Private Partnerships. Russia. Sovereign Wealth Fund. issuance of bonds. Government will undertake blitz interventions in the delivery of services. In the process. focusing on Brazil. The Office of the President and Cabinet will monitor and evaluate the implementation. the following. monitoring and evaluation of the Plan. inter- alia. securitization of remittances. leveraging resources. India. China and South Africa (BRICS).

1 The Government of Zimbabwe. post the 31st July 2013 Harmonised Election.2 As the country moves forward. there is urgent need to put in place an economic blue-print that is guided by the ZANU PF Manifesto and the Presidential Vision as encapsulated in His Excellency the President’s Inauguration Speech delivered on 22 August 2013. 1. the Plan must ensure 12 . in pursuit of the policy of empowering its people.0 Introduction 1. embarked on the Land Reform Programme which resulted in Britain and its allies imposing illegal economic sanctions on the country after year 2000. whilst leveraging own resources. The blue-print will be focused on a People Centered Government that prides itself in promoting equitable development and prosperity for all Zimbabweans.Chapter 1 1. The resultant sanctions brought about poor economic performance and untold suffering to the populace. Additionally.

outputs. strategies and resources. In addition.4 This will be achieved through re-orienting Government Ministries to formulate policies and programmes guided by the Results Based Management (RBM) system. among other things. 1. 1. Government will ensure that the budgetary process is aligned to the programming requirements of the Plan. 13 . key result areas. values. missions. goals and objectives.3 Going forward therefore. that there is sustainable growth and development of the economy by. institutional structures and systems will be strengthened through the establishment of a Results Based Government that seeks to optimise utilisation of scarce resources allocated in order to reinforce the achievement of the indigenization. empowerment and employment creation agenda. engendering unity of purpose among the different stakeholders. which are translated into a results framework of outcomes. which focuses on clear organisational visions.

a National Corporate Governance Framework will be launched and implemented resulting in the re-invention of Government and private sector business to be more citizen friendly.1. 1.7 A wider consultative process within Government and the private sector and a review of previous national development programmes. aptly named the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio- Economic Transformation (Zim Asset): October 2013 - December 2018 whose implementation will be cluster based. 1. performance contracts will be introduced at all senior management levels in the public sector.5 To ensure that Government is totally committed towards building a robust and sustainable results oriented socio- economic growth and performance management culture. Government will immediately implement initiatives that can yield rapid results (Quick-Wins). greatly informed the formulation of this blue- print.6 Additionally. 1.8 Through Zim Asset. Given the 14 .

aforesaid. 15 . all clusters have indicated in their matrices the Quick-Wins to be implemented from October 2013 up to December 2015.

Furthermore. This may explain the resilience of the economy in the face of the debilitating illegal economic 16 . one of the resources that gives Zimbabwe a comparative advantage over regional and other international countries is its economic complexity.2 Zimbabwe’s economic complexity as defined in the “Atlas of Economic Complexity. 2.

This is attributable to structural and infrastructural bottlenecks such as erratic power supply. which if not addressed. 19 . hence negatively affecting value addition and beneficiation as well as employment creation. experiences a myriad of challenges. The economy has also been saddled with a high debt overhang with an estimated debt stock of US$10 billion as at December 2012 caused by the country’s failure to access international capital and investment inflows as illegal economic sanctions have not been removed. 2. 2.

the Plan seeks to address systemic institutional weaknesses by allowing the full exploitation of benefits arising from horizontal and vertical linkages. 3. Government will continue to defend the gains of the country’s hard-won Independence by making sure that the agricultural sector remains the beacon of the economy. there is great need to optimize utilisation of the scarce revenue streams that flow into the fiscus.11 To ensure food and nutrition security.3. 36 . This Plan. 3. as reiterated. productivity and product quality. hence fostering the spirit of collaboration and partnerships among Government Agencies. will be greatly guided by the Results Based Management System and Results Based Budgeting (RBB) which emphasises achievement of tangible and high quality results from limited resources.10 Additionally. The Government will re- establish financial support for agriculture so that farmers will increase production.9 Being cognisant of the fact that Government will continue to experience fiscal space challenges going into the near future.

37 . While the Plan will ensure that the Presidential Input Support Scheme focuses on supporting the vulnerable groups at household and community level. iii. ii. Improved agricultural infrastructure to mitigate against drought through rehabilitation and expansion of irrigation projects and increased construction of dams. Continued use of the multiple currency system. Government will recapitalize and capacitate AgriBank and the Grain Marketing Board (GMB). it will also ensure that other farmers timeously access affordable inputs.12 In order to stimulate agricultural productivity and safeguard food security. The anticipated growth within the Agricultural Sector will be underpinned by the following sectoral assumptions: i. Timeous availability of inputs on the market at affordable prices.3. Policies will also be put in place to promote contract farming initiatives. the Agricultural Marketing Authority (AMA) and the Agricultural Rural Development Authority (ARDA).

Increased contract farming arrangements (tobacco and cotton).13 In the social services and poverty eradication sphere.

supply and sanitation. upgrade and develop the national power grid. the production and use of bio-fuels as enablers for economic productivity and growth. road and railway network. The following assumptions will underpin the optimal generation and use of energy in the economy: 39 . 3. To this end. standards of living of the populace. buildings as well as ICT related infrastructure. Accordingly. Government will rehabilitate. 3.15 In the Energy Sector the Plan will in addition prioritise attainment of optimal generation of power. water storage. Government will continue to improve the quality of education from Early Childhood Development (ECD) to vocational and tertiary levels to enhance literacy levels and skills development.14 A robust infrastructure network and system plays a fundamental role in the socio-economic development of Zimbabwe. the Infrastructural Development Bank of Zimbabwe (IDBZ) will need to be recapacitated to enable it to strategically fulfill its mandate in infrastructural development.

ii.16 One of the focus areas of the Plan is to ensure that all primary commodities across sectors create more value through processing and beneficiation. v. iii. iv. Completion of new big and mini-hydro-power projects such as Batoka and Gairezi respectively. Raising the installed generation capacity of existing power stations to their optimum. Bulawayo and Munyati to full power generation capacity. and vi. Full utilization of alternative forms of energy such as Coal Bed Methane Gas. 3. Expansion of existing power stations such as Hwange and Kariba. Government foresees this sector 40 . Deliberate development of solar and wind energy initiatives. i. Resuscitating small thermal power stations of Harare. Given the country’s abundant mineral resource base.

3. SMEs and Co-operatives. contributing immensely towards GDP growth. consortia. Recovery in international commodity prices. 41 . This will be achieved by establishing indigenous mining syndicates.17 In view of the foregoing. hence resonating well with the Government’s thrust of indigenization. Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation (ZMDC) and the Minerals Marketing Corporation of Zimbabwe (MMCZ). empowerment and employment creation. national institutions such as the Mineral Exploration Company. Strengthening and capacitating the key mining institutions of Minerals Exploration Company. will play a pivotal role in management of the minerals value chain system in terms of creating a conducive environment for minerals exploitation. value addition and marketing. Improved electricity and water supply. The continued growth of the mining sector will be underpinned by the following assumptions: i. ii. iii. ZMDC and MMCZ.

and v. Resumption of operations at New ZimSteel (formally ZISCO-Steel).18 In the manufacturing sector. the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) will be recapitalized and its operations refocused as one of the key investment vehicles to assist ailing industries. Improved electricity and water supply. 3. Government is totally committed to resuscitating distressed and closed companies with a view to increasing capacity utilization to optimum levels. Increased support to the SMEs and Cooperatives in the mining sector. In this regard. iii. ii. Establishment of new iron and steel companies. 42 . iv. Improved liquidity conditions resulting in availability of finance for the sector. generating employment and substituting imports as well as building a sustainable basis for export led growth. The resuscitation and growth of the manufacturing sector will be premised on the following conditions: i.

20 The successful implementation of the Zim Asset Plan will be anchored on sustainable economic empowerment and employment creation programmes for the citizenry. IDBZ and other financial institutions. iv.19 In the wake of the successful co-hosting of the 20th Session of the UNWTO General Assembly by Zimbabwe and Zambia. continued improvement of the country’s image and aggressive marketing efforts. 3. Furthermore. and v. The main 43 . this key economic driver will be supported by implementing a National Tourism Policy. the tourism sector has proven to be a major economic pillar currently contributing 10% of the Gross Domestic Product. Key institutions in this sector such as the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) and the National Conventions Bureau (NCB) will play a paramount role in ensuring the sustainable contribution of the tourism sector to the GDP of the country. 3. The contribution is expected to increase to 15% by 2015. Resuscitation and recapitalisation of the local industry. Strengthening and capacitating key institutions such as IDC.

thrust of the SMEs and Co-operatives policy will be on creating

and growing opportunities for business, skills development and

provision of funding for indigenous business ventures especially

start-ups and those run by previously disadvantaged individuals.

In order to achieve financial inclusion of innovative youth and

women in the formal sector, SEDCO will be recapitalized to

finance the development of these projects. In pursuance of the

aforementioned sustainable developmental thrust, Government

will continue with the “Look East” Policy to unlock the inflow

of potential investment into the country.

4.0 Implementation Structure

4.1 The Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) will have an

oversight, co-ordinative and policy guidance role in the

implementation of the Plan which will be carried out by

Government Ministries and Agencies categorised into four

clusters as follows:

i. Food Security and Nutrition;

ii. Social Services and Poverty Eradication;

iii. Infrastructure and Utilities;

iv. Value Addition and Beneficiation.

4.2 In an effort to engender team spirit in the operations of

Government, Ministries and Government Agencies have been

put into clusters which relate to the Cabinet Committee

system. The clusters are called upon to eliminate

compartmentalization and the silo mentality by creating strong

synergistic relationships that fully exploit the benefits of both
