- Economic growth slowed from 3.8% in 2014 to an estimated 1.5% in 2015 as a result of weak domestic demand, high public debt, tight liquidity conditions, drought, poor infrastructure, institutional weaknesses and an overvalued exchange rate with projected negative inflation in 2016 and 2017.
- The business environment improved according to the World Bank report, Doing Business 2016, with the country moving up 16 places to 155 out of 189 countries.
- Zimbabwe has experienced reverse urbanisation in recent years as an economic slowdown hampered opportunities in cities.
