Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube interview at Chatham House, London

Zimbabwe’s economy is under strain. Liquidity shortages, renewed worries of inflation and diminishing delivery on social programmes are putting citizens under pressure and testing resilience.

The post-election government has multiple policy priorities including tackling debt, reducing the government’s wage bill and reviving international investment. The agriculture and mining sectors have shown growth but to translate this into economic transformation will require balancing the need of public spending and currency reform with demands for short-term stability.

At this meeting, Professor Mthuli Ncube will outline his ministry’s priorities for delivering economic reform and recovery in Zimbabwe.

THIS EVENT WILL BE LIVE HERE AT 2.30 PM
