The purpose of this paper is to assess the potential of the Zimbabwean economy to transform and achieve sustainable inclusive growth. Its findings were that the Zimbabwean economy was in decline and in need of an infusion of new capital to stimulate further sustainable growth. This infusion, in turn depends on re-engaging IFIs and settling arrears on existing loans. Potential for strong sustained growth is indicated by the young age of the population by international standards. Moreover, the services sector, a major contributor to Zimbabwe’s GDP has demonstrated resilience with a high potential to rise faster than agriculture and industry. Elimination of uncertainty, policy reversals will greatly aid in the potential recovery.
