    Zimbabwe’s debt overhang is an impediment to the growth trajectory. By end-2011, invalidated external debt stock (including arrears) was estimated at US$10.7 billion, representing 113.5% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product of which 67% is arrears. The bulk of the debt is owed to bilateral creditors amounting to US$3.3 billion (or 31% of total debt stock), followed by multilateral creditors at US$2.8 billion (26%), other debt at US$2.5 billion (23%) and private debt at US$2.1 billion (19%). It was pointed out that the country needs $15 billion to cover the resource gap in the implementation of 2011-2015 Medium Term Plan and this cannot be achieved without a comprehensive debt relief. The possibility of using the country’s mineral resources to settle the debt in the medium term must be accompanied by a debt relief mechanism.
