Zambia Inflation Rate at 9.30 percent  
Zambia's annual inflation rate soared to 9.3 percent in August 2019 from 8.8 percent in the previous month. This is the highest inflation rate since October 2016, mainly due rising food prices (10.3 percent vs 9.3 percent in July), amid the worst drought in almost four decades. In this regard, the Agriculture Minister Michael Katambo announced on 25th August, the introduction of a cap on the price of maize to keep the staple food affordable, after prices have reached a record high this year. This sparked farmers’ protests accusing the government of bringing back price controls. On the other hand, inflation remained steady for non-food items (at 8.3 percent). Month-on-month, consumer prices inched up 0.7 percent, after a 0.5 percent gain in the prior month.

Zambia Composite PMI at 46.00  
The Stanbic Bank Zambia rose to 46.0 in August 2019 from 44.4 in the previous month, signalling a sixth successive monthly deterioration in the country's business conditions but at a softer pace. Output, employment and purchasing activity decreased less. However, new orders fell steeply, amid a lack of money and low customer numbers. Despite the reduction in operating capacity, companies were still able to work through outstanding business, which led backlogs to decline for the fourteenth month running. On the price front, overall input costs increased at the slowest pace since April. Also, output prices increased the least in four months, as firms offered discounts as part of efforts to attract clients. Looking ahead, business sentiment remained positive, on hopes of an improvement in business conditions.
