Statement On The Recently Announced 2020 Budget

September 30, 2019

Zambian DNA is elated that the recently announced 2020 National Budget is progressive  and demonstrates Government’s resolve and commitment to address various critical issues of great concern to the majority Zambians and the business community.

It’s gratifying to note that the Government’s decision to abandon Sales Tax is a right step in the right direction as it demonstrates that we have a listening Government under the stewardship of President Edgar Lungu whose interest is not only to build the much- needed investor confidence, spur and accelerate economic growth, but also to improve the Zambian people’s welfare.

Suffice to mention that Government‘s commitment to improve the Zambian people’s welfare and stimulate private sector’s contribution to economic growth cannot be over empathized given their willingness to dismantle  domestic arrears owed to retirees and contractors.
