Zambia Institute for Policy Analysis and Research -ZIPAR- is calling for solid long-term policies that will support economic recovery.
ZIPAR Executive Director Herrick Mpuku has told Phoenix News that since government’s focus is to grow the country’s economic post debt restructuring period, implementing clear cut policies is critical to accelerate growth both in the medium and long term.
Dr Mpuku says enhancing growth in key sectors of the economy will also require increasing the country’s participation in regional and international trade.
He is of the view that reconstructing the economy needs the promotion of traditional and nontraditional minerals through mineral beneficiation, value addition, artisanal and small-scale mining development.
