Zimbabwe Infrastructure Report 2019
Zimbabwe has faced headwinds over the last decade resulting in a collapse of the economy. However, following the political transition of November 2017, the new government requested the African Development Bank to update the 2011 Zimbabwe Infrastructure Flagship Report, so as to aid in investment planning as part of the vision 2030. The government also requested the Bank to prepare an urgent economic report, to assist and advice on re-engagement with the international community. All these requests were to aid in the Joint Needs Assessment that was to be coordinated by the Bank, the United Nations and the World Bank. The Bank accepted these requests, cognizant of the fact that policy actions and, in particular, investment in infrastructure have important roles to play in the development of continental trade and in promoting economic linkages within Africa.
