Captains of industry and commerce are concerned that the just launched MTP might fail to yield intended goals if not fully implemented.

Chairman of the Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce National Advisory Council, Mr Luxon Zembe said industry is waiting to assess the impact of the MTP on economic growth.

“On paper, this policy seems to be good but let’s wait and see,” said Mr Zembe.mtp delagets.jpg


A banker, Mr Nigel Chanakira says the government should ensure that the policy benefits socio- economic sectors.

“I hope this policy will not just gather dust in the short to long term,” Mr Chanakira said.

While there is concern about failed economic blue prints, the Chairman of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Parastatals and State Enterprises, Cde Larry Mavima says stakeholder commitment on MTP implementation is important.

“We hope everything will be fine in the near future and the MTP will be a success,” Cde Mavima said.

The MTP is premised on social and economic development to facilitate positive growth rates.
