The 2010 Zambian Inflation Target Was Aimed At A Single Digit!

How was the 2010 Zambian inflation?

In the year 2010, the year-end inflation was set at 8.0 percent.

Government's intention in 2010 was to maintain the status quo: The inflation rate should be in single digits!

On 12th January 2010, a 15 percent increment on petroleum products was announced. There was concern raised by consumers that this will fuel inflationary pressures and affect the economic gains that the country had recorded in 2009.

In December 2010, Zambia's inflation rate closed at 7.9 percent. In 2010 the country recorded a record 2.8 million metric tonnes of maize. This had a significant contribution to the growth of GDP to 7.6 percent.
