11. Market size in Tanzania

Tanzania should be seriously considered by US exporters and service providers interested in exploring commercial opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Tanzania has ambitious plans to industrialize and become a middle-income economy by 2030. If Tanzania is to meet this target, the energy and transportation infrastructure sectors must become more reliable and efficient. Tanzania's government (GoT) is focusing on developing local industries and investing heavily in infrastructure and energy sector development, which presents opportunities for US exports.

Due to a relatively stable political environment, reasonable macroeconomic policies, structural reforms, resilience to external shocks, and debt relief, the United Republic of Tanzania has maintained 6-7 percent GDP growth since the late 1990s. However, recently implemented GoT policies have raised concerns about the long-term prospects for foreign direct investment (FDI) and have created a more difficult business environment. Transportation, communications, agriculture, manufacturing, electricity, wholesale and retail trade, real estate, and business services have all contributed to growth.

Tanzania's main trading partners are China, India, the European Union (EU), and the countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the East African Community (EAC). Tanzanian exports to the US are dominated by agricultural commodities, minerals, and textiles, while US imports include wheat, agricultural and transportation equipment, chemicals, used clothing, and machinery.
