of these public consultative meetings is to engender a participatory
policy framework based on a bottom-up approach to strategic policy
making in Zimbabwe, a departure from the previous tradition. These
public finance management reforms are in line with the provisions
of the Public Finance Management Act, passed by Parliament
in 2009, which are aimed at broadening the democratic space in economic
governance. In this regard, all stakeholders are encouraged to seize
this opportunity and meaningfully participate in the 2013 Budget
