national development must start at local authority level, which he said were mandated to create conducive investment atmosphere.
“You should work closely with citizens through their associations and increase sustainable development,” said Dr Ndhlukula.
“We recommend adoption of Rapid Results Approach as a key remedy. This is part of results management aimed at fast tracking projects and the usual target time is 100 days.”
Dr Ndhlukula said there were many case studies in Africa such as in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi, where local authorities have played a pivotal role in investment.
The concept of RRA came as a directive from President Mugabe in his state of the nation address in 2015 that focused on removing investment barriers and enhancing ease of doing business.
Dr Ndhlukula said several Bills will be gazetted soon to assist businesses.
He said some sectors have already adopted the concept such as tourism, transport and agriculture that are at various stages of their 100 day-target period.
