In October 2018, the Government of Zimbabwe introduced the Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP) to stimulate economic growth and stabilise the macro-economic environment in the country. The programme is from October 2018 to December 2020. It is aimed at building a foundation that will ensure a prosperous and empowered upper middle-income society by 2030.
Within the period October 2018-2020, the Transitional Stabilisation Programme will focus on:
- Stabilizing the macro-economy, and the financial sector,
- Introducing necessary policy, and institutional reforms, to transform Zimbabwe to a private sector led economy; and
- Launch quick-wins to stimulate growth.
The TSP commits to overcome and redress the underlying challenges arising from economic fragility, joblessness, inequality and poverty (pg. iv). The programme recognises the need to empower women and youths, while also bringing to the fore key issues that improve the welfare of the historically marginalised groups, including children and people facing physical challenges.
