Evaluating the market in Tanzania

We can help you get a better understanding of market activity, relationships and support to grow your business.

Business environment in Tanzania

Tanzania enjoys relative political stability. The economy is heavily reliant on agriculture and mining, which makes it vulnerable to extreme weather conditions and commodity price fluctuations. The country is abundant in natural resources, including mining deposits (gold, diamonds, coal), and its economy should enjoy steady growth, driven by mining, telecoms and infrastructure investments. Canada has an established trade relationship with Tanzania and is a top investor in the country. We see potential export and investment opportunities across a wide range of sectors that match Canadian capabilities. Tanzania is a member of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
