Tanzania Economic Outlook

  • The economy is projected to grow by around 7% in 2014 and 2015, driven by transport, communications, manufacturing and agriculture and supported by public investment in infrastructure.
  • The government is expected to maintain fiscal consolidation aimed at expenditure and debt management, as well as a tight monetary policy to anchor inflation.
  • Preparation of the new constitution is in its final stages. The issues that remain high on the agenda include: the structure of the union between mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar, the presidential powers, natural resources management and political reforms.
