Zambia - OECD/AfDB Country Report 2012

The 2012 economic assessment from the AfDB and OECD on the Zambian economy is embedded below. It notes the favourable conditions, but highlights the economic vulnerability to external shock in view of a sluggish global economic recovery. Some potential mining exports impacts - though I don't think we need worry too much there except in terms of widening the debt envelope to meet potential budgetary requirements. We must remember that Zambia did very well during the last global slowdown. The report does also note that "high youth unemployment and slow progress in poverty reduction may also overshadow the gains made from strong growth and limited inflation".
