Former MInister of Finance Tendai Biti has claimed that the government which will be formed by the MDC Alliance will be able to build the country’s economy to $100 in 15 years. He said that in order to do this, they would focus on foreign direct investment.
I can tell you that with the experience which we got from the inclusive government this team (MDC Alliance) will be able to grow our economy. Zimbabwe’s current GDP is 12 billion but if we grow our economy during the Alliance governance just at the rate of 7% per annum, it means that in less than 15 years we can build a $100 billion dollar economy.
Our team has good friends and countries that respect and trust us to allow their companies to come and invest in Zimbabwe. What is needed is to create employment by attracting foreign direct investment
We must provide an answer to the question of unemployment. There are three generations of Zimbabweans who do not know what a payslip looks like. The truth of the matter is that our people are suffering.
