There is need to form a task force team of technocrats whose aim will be to assess how the economy is performing amid the Coronavirus, the Economics Association of Zambia has advised.
EAZ President Dr. Lubinda Haabazoka says the responsibility of the task force will be to find ways of mitigating the Covid-19 effects without causing a burden on future generation and the overall economy.
Dr Haabazoka said the task force should also be able to predict the immediate impact of the virus and give recommendations on how the country will deal with such challenges to avoid possible economic collapse.
In an interview with Capital FM News, Dr Haabazoka said this will help the country to recover quickly because government will know what interventions will be required to be put in place.
