Zimbabwe Infrastructure Report - Q4 2014

Zimbabwe's construction sector is impeded by political uncertainty that continues to dissuade investors.Despite vast resources, the country's construction industry remains weak compared with regional peers, asaverage growth over the forecast period (2014-2023) will be just 3.29%. Cash-rich Chinese companieshave been the main foreign investors to take a more risk-tolerant approach to Zimbabwe's power sector.

Zimbabwe holds vast potential as a frontier growth market in Southern Africa. However, it has beenunderperforming, with many foreign investors put off doing business in the country due to President RobertMugabe and his regime. The mining sector, which is a key growth driver for the country's infrastructure, hasin the past been hit hard by indigenisation drives. With Mugabe expected to execute these as part of hisregime, there is much concern that the mining industry will not give its infrastructure counterpart thesupport it has previously been able to give. This, coupled with poor legal and regulatory frameworks, hasseen only the most risk-tolerant enter the country. We expect growth to continue to underperform over thenear team, with risks to the downside for the 3.4% construction growth that is forecast for 2014. Over thelonger term, however, there is upside potential.
