President Emmerson Mnangagwa has revealed that he will give priority to infrastructure development during his second term which will see the completion of the country’s major projects.
Addressing Ministers today on his first cabinet meeting, President Mnangagwa said his government will give greater focus on the completion of key projects spanning from road rehabilitation, dam construction and the modernisation of the country’s major infrastructure.
“Infrastructure Development will continue to be a priority in the second Republic. Greater focus will be made on key projects including the Forbes Border Post modernisation, the Harare- Churundu Highway, the Harare-Kanyemba Road, the Tugwi Mukosi control tunnel and the re-capitalisation of the Nation Railways of Zimbabwe. The completion of the Mbudzi Interchange, Gwayi Shangani Dam and other strategic dams across our provinces will be expedited,” said President Mnangagwa.
He added that government will also work towards creating a conducive business environment to promote economic growth.
“Prudent fiscal and monetary policies and promotion of a conducive business environment remains critically important for the stability and growth of our economy. Accordingly, the fiscal and monetary authorities are implementing a raft of policy measures to arrest price increases, stabilise the foreign exchange rate, maintain the value of our currency and ultimately encourage savings,” President Mnangagwa said.
The new cabinet will be expected to drive Zimbabwe towards an Upper middle-income economy by 2030.
