Business environment in Tanzania

Tanzania is politically stable and its economy is heavily reliant on agriculture and mining, making it vulnerable to extreme weather conditions and commodity price fluctuations. The country’s natural resources are abundant, including mining deposits (gold, diamonds, coal), and its economy is expected to steadily grow, driven by mining, telecoms and infrastructure investments. Tanzania has transitioned to a market economy, but the government retains a presence in sectors such as telecommunications, banking, energy, and mining. Recently, the country invested heavily in rehabilitating its aging infrastructure, including rail and port, which provides important trade links for landlocked countries.
