BMI View: Zimbabwe's construction industry remains highly risky for investors, poorly financed andsubject to the policies of President Robert Mugabe, which have resulted in a very poor businessenvironment. Zimbabwe is keen to encourage foreign investment. However, so far China remains the onlyactor making inroads into the country - into the power and mining sectors.

Latest Updates

- We expect weak growth in the Zimbabwe construction industry as high risks, poor financing availabilityand dim growth prospects ward off investment, outside of Chinese state-sponsored projects.

- As such, we forecast 2.5% real growth for 2016, with growth to remain fairly stable with an average of2.5% over the course of our ten-year forecast period to 2025.

- Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) expects to reach financial close by H216 for the USD1.1bnexpansion of Hwange Thermal Power Station in the region of Matabeleland. The plant, which producesan average of 500MW, will have capacity to add 600MW to the national power grid once the expansionis complete.

- The government announced in January that construction of the Batoka hydropower plant is set to start in2017. The plant, to be built on the Zambezi River along the Zimbabwe-Zambia border, is a joint venturebetween the two countries. Feasibility studies for the scheme are expected to be concluded by June 2016.The World Bank is the primary financier of the project, which is expected to produce 2,400MW ofelectricity.
