The Rapid Results approach adopted by the Second Republic has contributed to tangible socio-economic transformation and realisation of development goals set out in the Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP).
Preliminary assessment by Government has picked positive indicators on the effectiveness of the Rapid Results Approach and the 100-day target based programme in expediting implementation of projects.
The current trajectory has laid a firm foundation for the attainment of Vision 2030, whose objective is to ensure that the country becomes a middle income economy in nine years’ time.
With massive infrastructure development programmes underway countrywide including rehabilitation and upgrading of roads, construction of dams and drilling of boreholes among others, the delivery tools have been identified as key performance indicators.
Infrastructure development is expected to spur economic development.
Speaking during a monitoring and assessment tour of the TelOne Makuti-Chirundu Fibre Optic Link project and the containerised village information centre in Chirundu, Minister of State for Presidential Affairs and Monitoring, Implementation of Government Programmes Dr Joram Gumbo expressed satisfaction with the implementation of Government programmes.
Government adopted the performance enhancement tools after realising that there were inadequacies in some sectors.
After touring several projects across the country, results have been encouraging.
“The adoption of the programme (100 Day target based programme) therefore reflects a pledge by Government to ensure speedy and efficient implementation of projects for the benefit of citizens.
“I am happy to report that results on the ground indicate that the Rapid Results Approach is producing positive results and contributing to the improvement of the livelihoods of our people,” said Dr Gumbo.
Government is in the process of compiling a publication on achievements under the 100-day cycle showcasing projects that were successfully implemented during the 2nd and 5th 100-Day Cycles.
