Zimbabwe GDP Annual Growth Rate

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Zimbabwe expanded 4.40 percent in 2012 from the previous year. GDP Annual Growth Rate in Zimbabwe is reported by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe. From 1961 until 2012, Zimbabwe GDP Annual Growth Rate averaged 2.5 percent reaching an all time high of 22.6 percent in December of 1970 and a record low of -17.7 percent in December of 2008. Zimbabwe’s economy, once one of the strongest in Africa, now has the lowest GDP per capita in the world. Years of mismanagement and endemic corruption has completely destroyed the country. The main sources of government revenues are exports of nickel, platinum, diamond and tobacco. To make things even worst, in response to political violence and human rights abuse, Zimbabwe has been subjected to numerous sanctions. As a result, the country experienced ten consecutive years of contraction and had one of the worst cases of hyperinflation of all time which resulted in the suspension of the national currency. The current sluggish growth is expected to endure as government fails to address structural obstacles to growth such as limited capital resource and deficient infrastructure.

GDP Annual Growth Rate | Notes
The annual growth rate in Gross Domestic Product measures the increase in value of the goods and services produced by an economy over the period of a year. Therefore, unlike the commonly used quarterly GDP growth rate the annual GDP growth rate takes into account a full year of economic activity, thus avoiding the need to make any type of seasonal adjustment.
