President Robert Mugabe today assured the nation that his government’s economic blueprint for the years 2013 to 2018, the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (ZimAsset), will bring about the much-needed economic recovery. Speaking at a prize giving ceremony for security forces, Mugabe said: “Let me assure our people that the country’s economy is on recovery path. Government is going to employ several measures aimed at achieving desired results. ZimAsset will have all government and quasi-government institutions formulate their strategic action plans to be supervised through the Integrated Results-Based Management. IRBM is a strategic management tool aimed at effectively eradicating mal-performance. It focuses on enhancing commitment and duty consciousness in all government work forces. The implementation of IRBM should effectively bring about the desired success of our economic turnaround.” Reports say that the government needs US$27 billion to implement ZimAsset an amount that the government does not have at the moment as it is going through a liquidity crisis. But studies have shown that Zimbabwe has the fastest growth potential in Africa.
