IN 2007, THE ECONOMY GREW JUST 5.8 per cent in Zambia, down from 6.2 per cent in 2006, primarily due to slower growth in the volume of copper production.The construction sector remained buoyant however, with growth remaining stable in 2007. In 2008 and 2009, the economy is expected to recover to just above 6 per cent growth with a strong increase in copper exports following huge investments in 2006 and 2007. This expansion in volume is expected to offset declining world market prices. On the negative side, adverse weather and increasing power outages at the beginning of 2008 will limit growth in agriculture and manufacturing.
