Tanzania’s annual GDP growth rate averaged 7% over the past 5 years, one of the 20 fastest growing economies in the world

Posted on :Tuesday , 13th June 2017

The East African nation of Tanzania has an estimated population of 50 million as of 2016. The country has maintained relatively stable, high growth over the last decade (averaging 6%–7% per annum). While the poverty rate has recently declined, the absolute number of the poor has not changed given the fast pace of population growth (over 3% per annum).  

Today, agriculture is the main contributor to the value of Tanzania’s economy, while tourism is the leading sector in terms of foreign exchange earnings. Tanzania’s economic potential comes from the mining & energy sector which draws increasing amounts of global investments due to the country’s position as a net exporter of gold and its recent discoveries of natural gas reserves.

Tanzania’s annual GDP growth rate averaged 7% over the past 5 years, making it one of the 20 fastest growing economies in the world and beating the Sub-Saharan Africa average GDP growth rate of 4.4% during the same period.

Tanzania is a thriving nation; it has seen increase in FDIs by 13% from USD 1.8bn in 2011 to USD 2.04bn in 2015, making the country the first FDI destination in East Africa.

Investments in Tanzania increased largely thanks to the recent discoveries of 45 trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves, the 2015 World Investment Report of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) indicates. According to the Foreign Service Institute of the US Department of State, the top five providers of FDI into Tanzania are South Africa, UK, Kenya, Canada, and China and to help with this upstream Expogroup brings to you the 20th EAITE 2017 Tanzania.

The Expo will consist of more than 95 exhibitors from 30 countries and will showcase their latest wares to thousands of trade buyers and decision makers from throughout the Middle East, Africa, and further afield.
