Zimbabwe GDP Annual Growth Rate

Zimbabwe’s economy, once one of the strongest in Africa, has one of the lowest GDP per capita in the world. Years of mismanagement and endemic corruption has completely destroyed the country. The main sources of government revenues are exports of nickel, platinum, diamond and tobacco. To make things even worst, in response to political violence and human rights abuse, Zimbabwe has been subjected to numerous sanctions. As a result, the country experienced ten consecutive years of contraction and had one of the worst cases of hyperinflation of all time which resulted in the suspension of the national currency. The current sluggish growth is expected to endure as government fails to address structural obstacles to growth such as limited capital resource and deficient infrastructure.
