The 2011-2012 Manufacturing Sector Study Report is a culmination of the field survey and detailed desk research, which was commissioned by the Ministry of Commerce, Trade and Industry (MCTI) as part of its evidence-based policy analysis to support its programmatic and analytical work.
The report and its findings outline the state of the manufacturing sector in Zambia and progress of implementation of the Manufacturing sector policy strategies. Particular emphasis is paid on how the implementation of the manufacturing-focused policy and strategies impacted on the economic and business performance of manufacturing sector industries.
The report shows that the leading subsector in manufacturing was Food, Beverages and Tobacco, accounting for most of the growth in the manufacturing sector. The worst performing subsector was the Textiles and Leather subsector which continued to shrink over the period of review.
