Transport to drive economy

Article - November 30, 2011
Banking reforms, solid macro-economic policies and significant investment from the IMF and World Bank have boosted Tanzania’s recent economic performance. In 2009-10, the country bucked global trends, increasing GDP by 6 per cent year-on-year.
However, Tanzania’s ageing transport infrastructure is struggling to keep up with the demands of a thriving economy and is in need of a complete overhaul.

The Surface and Marine Transport Regulatory Authority (SUMATRA), established in 2001, oversees all non-aviation transport in Tanzania, including road, railway and maritime operations. Acting director general Ahmad Kilima believes Tanzania offers foreign investors some great opportunities: “Our stable and business-friendly government is keen to incentivise investment in infrastructure and we have reduced red tape to make doing business here easier. Tanzania benefits from a number of natural resources and we are also the perfect platform for the East African market and the gateway to our landlocked neighbours -–Zambia, DRC, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda and South Sudan.”
