Summary:

The Staff Report was prepared by a staff team of the IMF for the Executive Board’s consideration on February 24, 2020. The staff report reflects discussions with the Zimbabwe authorities in September and December 2019 and is based on the information available as of February 12, 2020. It focuses on Zimbabwe’s near- and medium-term challenges and policy priorities and was prepared before COVID-19 became a global pandemic that has resulted in unprecedented strains in global trade, commodity, and financial markets. It, therefore, does not reflect the implications of these developments and related policy priorities. The outbreak has greatly amplified uncertainty and downside risks around the outlook. Staff is closely monitoring the situation and will continue to work on assessing its impact and the related policy response in Zimbabwe and globally.
