46. Bank behaviour in developing countries: evidence from East Africa
  Friday, May 05, 2006  by Admin
  This working paper analyzes the structure, performance and role of the banking systems in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. Research conducted does not find support for the argument that large international banks have adverse effects on the effectiveness and efficiency of banking sectors in developing countries. International banks do seem to be more efficient and more active in lending than domestic banks.

  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  This Outlook has been prepared in the context of the project, Strategies and mechanisms for
promoting cleaner production investments in developing countries, financed by the government of Norway and implemented by the Division of Technology, Industry and Economics of UNEP. The

48. Entrepreneurs challenges in exporting Tanzanias indigenous products of; the case of makonde carvings
  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  Entrepreneurs in indigenous industries create national prosperity. The nation economy cannot
grow because of being endowed with natural resources only. It also depends on innovative and
upgrading characteristics of the indigenous country industries and entrepreneurs.

contributes about 16percent of the Gross National Product (GDP). Tourist industry has related and supporting industries.
49. Opportunities and Risks in Liberalising Trade in Services in Tanzania
  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  With an underdeveloped services sector, inadequate regulatory framework and low capacity for trade negotiations, Tanzania faces a daunting task to make correct policy decisions in order to take advantage of the GATS. Nevertheless, the impact of WTO-led market opening will be cushioned by the fact that Tanzania has already undertaken substantial unilateral services liberalisation under the banner of economic reforms.
50. The Industrial Experience of Tanzania
  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  This collection of articles focuses on an analysis of the industrial experience
of Tanzania since independence in 1961. Tanzania is taken as a case study of industrialization in sub-Saharan Africa because it represents many of the common features of industrialization processes in other African economies. What we need to understand is why some developing economies, which started from low levels of per capita income in the post-war period,
achieved some measure of success in industrialization and economic development,
while others did not.
51. The IMF, gold sales and multilateral debt cancellation
  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  The IMF holds the largest official reserves of gold in the world after the United States
and Germany. These are held at a significant discount to the market price and have a latent additional value of about $34 billion at current price levels. The IMF has no real use for this gold1 and it is not used in the general day to day operations of the Fund. Moreover gold constitutes only about 2% of the IMF’s total available resources. There is also a significant opportunity cost to holding gold in its present form. Our calculations show that by holding gold the IMF has lost about $30 billion in potential revenue since 1979-80 when fund staff first suggested that the gold be sold. The IMF, gold sales and multilateral debt cancellation
52. Dar opposes wholesale liberalisation of markets
  Wednesday, March 08, 2006  by Admin
  Tanzania is opposing the idea of liberalizing by 100 per cent markets of developing countries, saying that the move will affect local industries. Marco Kassaja, a top official from the countrys permanent mission in Geneva, gave the position at the regional forum held in Zanzibar recently. He was presenting a paper at the two-day forum titled: possibilities for advancing development interests of East African Countries in the WTO Negotiations.

  Monday, March 06, 2006  by Admin
  Tanzania to Start Exporting Beef - Tanzania will start exporting beef abroad after succeeding in fighting foot and mouth disease (FMD) and other related diseases affecting domestic animals.

54. Manufacturing in Tanzania Under a Curse
  Wednesday, February 22, 2006  by Admin
  In its issue number 482, the Financial Times of Dar es Salaam analyses the problems plaguing the manufacturing sector in Tanzania. It mentions high power and operation costs and poor communication systems, which makes it hard to distribute raw materials and finished products.
At the same, time manufacturing is said to be growing at a rate surpassed only by service and mining. Imports for the sector rose by 18 per cent to $2,547.2 million in the 2004/5 fiscal year, according to Bank of Tanzania.
55. Agricultural Marketing and Supply Chain Management in Tanzania
  Tuesday, January 31, 2006  by Admin
  This study describes the current marketing arrangements in Tanzania, using Dar es Salaam, Ifakara and Mtwara as case studies. Impediments captured in this study include physical infrastructure, knowledge and capital and institutional framework. The Government has made changes in its policy to open markets and to facilitate free trade in the country. Changes at the top must be complemented with supporting policies at lower levels of administration to ensure trade liberalisation serves as a welfare increasing policy instrument.
56. Diagnostic Trade Integration Study under the Integrated Framework Concept Paper
  Friday, December 16, 2005  by Admin
  The proposed Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DITS) is being prepared under the Integrated Framework for Trade-Related Technical Assistance to Least Developed Countries (IF). The IF is a multi-agency, multi-donor program established by WTO trade ministers in 1996 to promote the integration of the least developed countries (LDCs) into the global economy. The participating agencies are the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the International Trade Center (ITC), United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the World Bank and the World Trade Organization (WTO).
57. Tourism in Africa and the Multilateral Trading System: Challenges and Opportunities
  Friday, December 16, 2005  by Admin
  An overview of tourism in general, and in Africa in particular, within GATS rules on Tourism is the starting point of this study to develop a number of considerations. Firstly, some of the bottlenecks and potential for Tourism development in Africa will be listed, as well as how the present state of WTO negotiations affect tourism development in the region. Secondly, this study will analyse commitments by African countries to WTO rules pertaining to tourism, trying to input this tentative outcome into a technical backstop for a continental negotiating stance by African countries for the maximum benefit of tourism to African growth
58. An export strategy that markets the country
  Monday, December 05, 2005  by Admin
  During the last financial year ending July, our foreign missions were applauded for generating over USD50 million by encouraging investors and visitors to come to Tanzania. The handsome cash was minted by offering services such as visas and other strategic information seen critical to investment decision-making or holidaying.
The monies collected during that period were far beyond the budgetary needs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation.
59. ITC to continue training women exporters
  Friday, November 25, 2005  by Admin
  The International Trade Centre (ITC) will continue to support Tanzanian women exporters to enable them better understand the process of export in international trade and relevant international rules, a trade adviser has said.
The adviser, Sebastien Turrel, with the PACT Programme of the International Trade Centre mentioned this commitment to The Guardian during the on- going Access Exporters Training organised and sponsored by ITC and the Trade Facilitation Office Canada.
60. Non-Tariff Barriers Blocking Kenya Exports to Tanzania
  Friday, November 25, 2005  by Admin
  Some Kenyan manufacturers are finding it hard to enter the Tanzanian market, almost one year after the East African Customs Union came into effect (January 1, 2005).Kenyas tea exports to Tanzania are facing non-tariff barriers.
Under the union, goods to and from Uganda and Tanzania enter Kenya duty free. But specific goods from Kenya into the two countries attract duties, ranging from 25 per cent to five per cent, under a programme to end internal tariffs on Kenya goods by 2010.
