Christopher Makaza writing for the Herald listed the following and said these are Zimbabwe’s achievements as part of the president’s 2030 Agenda:
- The Government has spent over US$2,5 billion on infrastructure as development is a key enabler in attaining an upper-middle-income economy. Key roads and several others have been constructed and rehabilitated. Airports have also been rehabilitated and expanded.
- The Government has managed to deliver on some of the priority projects that provide downstream benefits to the overall economy. These include Tugwi-Mukosi Dam, Bulawayo and Victoria Falls International Airports upgrading and the Kariba South Expansion Project among several others.
- Hwange Thermal Power Station is being expanded to improve power supply because the manufacturing and mining sectors critically depend on power.
- Dualisation of the Beitbridge-Chirundu Highway has already begun. The first phase will see the rehabilitation of the actual road, before dualisation, which comes in the second phase
- Government has also continued to pursue the Special Agriculture Production Programme formally popularly termed “Command Agriculture” now known as the “Smart Agriculture” in partnership with the private sector.
- Transparency, accountability and value for money are key pillars for cost-effectiveness and efficient delivery of services. It is with this objective that the Government is implementing a number of measures to fight corruption, one of the sources of the increased cost of doing business, unbecoming behaviour and inefficiency on service delivery in both public and private sectors.
- Such social protection and safety nets include the Special Input Scheme for Vulnerable Households, Provision of technical and vocational skills through vocational training centres and SMEs common facilities, Women and Youth Empowerment Loan Funds, Special Grants in Support to the Elderly, Children and other Challenged Groups, Access to Health Care and Education among others
- The new dispensation also took the decision to finalise compensation to all former farmers affected by the Land Reform Programme, in accordance with the country’s Constitution
- Government undertakes to be a listening administration as demonstrated by the various “Meet the People Meetings” which extended across the country embracing various interest groups
