    Tanzania

    Since early 1990’s Tanzania has implemented far reaching macroeconomic and structural reforms which has led to substantial socio-economic development.  GDP growth per annum has almost doubled over the last decade from 4.1% in 1998 to 7.4% in 2008, with an average growth of 7% per annum. This is historically high for Tanzania and comparable to the performance of fastest growing economies in sub-Saharan Africa.  GDP growth peaked in 2004 at 7.8%, but severe and prolonged drought during 2005/06 negatively affected the economy, and the GDP has been gradually recovering to reach 7.4% in 2008.

The establishment of viable business enterprises agro-processors, transport services, and so forth as a result of increased agricultural mechanisation in rural areas, is crucial to creating employment and income opportunities and, thereby, enhancing the demand for farm produce.

    Tanzania

    Several countries in Africa including Tanzania have committed to live to Maputo Declaration that requires AU member states to allocate 10% of national budget to agricultural sector. It is assumed that sustained ten percent allocations into the sector would translate into 6% percent sector growth. However there are arguments whether the 10% percent allocation alone can contribute to food security and reduced poverty levels. The biggest challenge would be where should the government spend money in agriculture sector? How should the government spend the money?
