Zambia GDP Annual Growth Rate
Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world with 60 percent of population living below poverty line. In recent years, Zambia’s economy has been growing rapidly due to expansion of copper mining industry and agriculture diversification. However, widespread poverty, mainly caused by fast population growth and systemic youth unemployment, remains Zambia’s main economic challenge.
