HARARE, Nov 28 (Reuters) - Zimbabwe is on track to meet a narrower budget deficit of 5 percent of GDP in 2019 from an estimated 11.7 percent this year, Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube said on Wednesday.
Ncube also said the southern African nation achieved a budget surplus of $29 million in October, its first in as many years.
“We achieved a primary (budget) surplus in October. The budget is as good as balanced, we are walking the talk,” Ncube told reporters. (Reporting by MacDonald Dzirutwe Writing by Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo Editing by Joe Brock)
