Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa said agriculture is estimated to grow by 15.9% on the back of Government coordinated interventions in partnership with the private sector.

"In addition, the expanded "Command Agriculture" Programme, to include soya beans and livestock production, is expected to sustain growth of the sector. Mining is expected to grow by 7.5%4 in 2017, with most minerals anticipated to record output gains in the medium term," he said during the national budget presentation.

"This is being supported by modest recovery in international mineral prices for most minerals, including nickel, platinum, chrome and granite. As a result, mineral export receipts of US$2.5 billion are projected for 2018, up from US$2.3 billion in 2017."
