The EAZ is set to work towards coming the first choice in providing macroeconomic policy, research and analysis to the state. According to the EAZ president, Dr. Chrispin Mphuka, who is also the head of economics department at the University of Zambia, the advice that government receives from international institutions is well appreciated but should only supplement advice from Zambian economists.
Further, the EAZ has called upon economics and business administration departments of higher learning institutions to take up lead roles in providing the government with empirical evidence based research necessary to assist government with economic decision-making.
