Tanzania Market Report

Sunbird’s 2017 Tanzania market report is a comprehensive update to our 2016 report. Our complete series of reports cover Kenya, Mozambique, Zambia and Uganda. 

Tanzania has a rapidly expanding and urbanising population that has experienced strong GDP growth since the millennium. With a new and uncompromising government coming to power in 2015, the past year has been one of reform and progress. 2017 presents new challenges, as the government must institutionalise its reforms and implement its plans, a task that often thwarts positive beginnings. The huge fiscal stimulus programme aimed at establishing an industrial economy and unlocking the value of recent LNG reserves will require funding and cooperation from a varied group of stakeholders often with conflicting interests. The potential is equal only to the challenge of realising it. 

This report examines this exciting yet complex environment. Focusing on politics, demographics, economics and infrastructure we build a balanced overview of the country as a whole. We hope it can provide valuable insights and highlight our belief that Tanzania offers a promising investment environment now and in the future.
