Inflation in Zambia

Zambia Inflation | Economic News & Forecasts

Zambia - Inflation

Early data for the final quarter suggests the economy lost some pace, following a likely moderation in Q3 and weaker growth in H1 compared to H2 2017, due to a marked weakening in the country’s trade position. Overseas sales of copper declined for the second month running in October, reflecting a downturn in overall exports as demand weakened on cooling global growth and intensifying global trade tensions. Moreover, private sector activity continued to contract in November, with high fuel costs and a weaker kwacha weighing on demand.
