Zim Asset- Implementation structure

The Zimbabwe African National Union- Patriotic Front has been peddling the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (Zim Asset)- its economic blue print for 2013-2018- as the answer to the country’s economic woes. What is it?

The document is now available so The Insider has decided to serialise it. The Insider welcomes comments on the document. You can do this either through our comment section at the end of each story or, better still, through our Open Forum.

It is time that Zimbabweans started debating issues instead of suffering in silence and whining all the time. While most people have given up because they think our leaders do not listen- they do. I know because they have been watching The Insider for the past 23 years.


Here is the fourth chapter:


Chapter 4- Implementation structure

4.1 The Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) will have an oversight, co-ordinative and policy guidance role in the implementation of the Plan which will be carried out by Government Ministries and Agencies categorised into four clusters as follows:

  • Food Security and Nutrition;
  • Social Services and Poverty Eradication;
  • Infrastructure and Utilities;
  • Value Addition and Beneficiation.

4.2 In an effort to engender team spirit in the operations of Government, Ministries and Government Agencies have been put into clusters which relate to the Cabinet Committee system. The clusters are called upon to eliminate compartmentalization and the silo mentality by creating strong synergistic relationships that fully exploit the benefits of both horizontal and vertical linkages as a way of institutionalising harmonised approaches to Government programming.
