9 Oct Zimbabwe's Economy

Zimbabwe's finance minister, Mthuli Ncube, has warned Zimbabweans to expect pain during the reform process aimed at setting the country on the path to economic recovery. The recovery plan launched by Professor Ncube on Friday includes proposals to slash government spending, cut government job and increase taxes. The government of Zimbabwe has launched a Transitional Stabilisation Programme, as Zimbabweans are battling with sharp price increases, shortage of goods owing to panic and low confidence. The TSP is an economic reform programme aimed at re-aligning price distortions in line with the country's Vision 2030.
