The Zambian economy is under mounting pressure as the prolonged commodity price slump exposes structural challenges of weak infrastructure, structural imbalances and a narrow economic base. On the production side, drought has aggravated the structural power deficit, culminating in frequent and prolonged power cuts, higher labour costs and expensive imports of emergency power. GDP growth is now seen slowing to just 3.1% this year, its weakest since 1988, before a modest pick-up to 4.3% in 2017.

Pre-election violence and contested results have cast a shadow over the ruling PF's victory in the August elections. However, Zambia is set to emerge from economic hardship as fiscal consolidation takes precedence, restoring investor confidence and paving the way towards sustainable growth and diversification.
