We believe that the efficient and effective implementation of rigorously researched, insightful and responsible economic policies will boost the standard of living for all.
The NETP is the party of economic progress which can be trusted not to consume our riches in the short term but to create a wealthy and prosperous society into the future.
The NETP vision is for a Zambia which is a high-middle income country with wealth distributed fairly across society. Alongside this, a Zambia that has Africa`s leading public services to enable Zambian Citizens to proclaim themselves members of a proud, prosperous and dynamic democracy.
However, the situation today is worrying. It is a grim fact that Zambia’s economy has grown little in the last 50 years. Whereas, in other circumstances, it should have grown by a factor of ten or twenty - as has happened in many other economies in this time. The result is a country with endemic poverty, high unemployment, a lack of opportunity, poor education and health outcomes and with struggling democratic institutions.
