The World Bank has pointed out that Zimbabwe’s economy is projected to recover by 3.9% this year.

In report released today, the Bank noted that this is a major improvement, more so following a two-year economic recession.

The projected recovery has been attributed to the performance of the agricultural sector, the falling inflation and the relaxation of COVID-19 measures.

However the world’s biggest financial institution pointed out the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened extreme poverty in Zimbabwe.
