International Business Consultant, Trevor Simumba based in London, UK talks about Zambias economic improvements. “Zambia’s economy has experienced strong growth in recent years, with real GDP growth in 2005-08 about 6% per year. This performance has been lauded by many independent international observers and Zambia has been dubbed by the Economist magazine as ‘the lion kings’ putting Zambia alongside the Asian tigers.” The Washington, DC based think-tank Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal have ranked Zambia number 91 freest economy for 2011. The forecasts of the IMF, published in The Economist, lists Zambia as one of the top ten fastest growing economies in the world in the period 2011 to 2015.
