Trade Policy Developments in Tanzania: The Challenge of Global and Regional Integration
Over the past two decades, Tanzania has embarked on a marked liberalization of its trade regime. The Government wants this reform process to continue and sees international integration at the global and regional level as a means to achieve higher economic efficiency, productivity and international competitiveness. This study reviews the trade policy situation in Tanzania and identifies a number of key issues and challenges for the country. In particular, the analysis describes the state of domestic trade policy, examines regional integration efforts, and identifies priorities for the attention of policy makers and international donors.
