THE Sec­ond Na­tional Com­pet­i­tive­ness Re­port will be of­fi­cially launched in Harare this week, co­in­cid­ing with the na­tional eco­nomic sym­po­sium.

The Na­tional Eco­nomic Con­sul­ta­tive Fo­rum would host the one and half-day ind­aba start­ing on Wed­nes­day.

“The Na­tional Eco­nomic Con­sul­ta­tive Fo­rum (NECF) will from 12 to 13 Oc­to­ber 2016, host the Na­tional Eco­nomic Sym­po­sium at which the sec­ond Na­tional Com­pet­i­tive­ness Re­port will be launched,” said NECF in a state­ment.

The first com­pet­i­tive­ness launched in Oc­to­ber last year.

NECF said it em­barked on the sec­ond re­port as part of its con­tin­ued con­tri­bu­tion to eco­nomic pol­icy mak­ing and di­a­logue in­volv­ing the pub­lic, pri­vate and civic so­ci­ety sec­tors.

The sym­po­sium would be hosted un­der the theme “Fi­nanc­ing na­tional com­pet­i­tive­ness and eco­nomic pros­per­ity through di­a­logu­ing”.

The event will bring to­gether high level del­e­ga­tions from the Gov­ern­ment, pri­vate sec­tor, academia, in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tions, em­bassies and civic so­ci­ety to de­lib­er­ate on the econ­omy. About 500 del­e­gates are ex­pected to at­tend. The Na­tional Com­pet­i­tive­ness Re­port is a re­form track­ing tool that pro­vides a dash­board on the econ­omy crit­i­cal to Gov­ern­ment’s re­form agenda.

It pro­vides an in-depth as­sess­ment of the coun­try’s econ­omy, which is crit­i­cal to iden­ti­fy­ing Zim­babwe’s com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tages. Ex­ploita­tion of these ad­van­tages is ex­pected to im­prove the coun­try’s econ­omy. Con­tri­bu­tions from the de­lib­er­a­tions are ex­pected to feed into the 2017 na­tional bud­get. re­port was
