  Wednesday, July 21, 2004  by Admin
  Despite the spike in the annual inflation rate in April 2004, the underlying inflation rate in Tanzania remains very low. There was a sharp increase in the prices of foodstuffs during the month of April 2004, particularly the food grains (rice, maize and sorghum).

  Saturday, July 10, 2004  by Admin
  AIDS has the potential to create severe economic impacts in many African countries. It is

718. Statement By President Mkapa, Of Tanzania, Presenting To The Third Ordinary Session Of The Assembly Of The African Union, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 6 July 2004
  Friday, July 09, 2004  by Admin
  The report says that globalisation can and must change, and urges that building a fair and inclusive globalisation should now become a global priority. It calls for an urgent “rethink” of current policies and institutions of global governance. The report is critical but positive and balanced, its proposals ambitious but feasible. On the one hand, it stresses that globalisation’s positive aspects have brought great benefits to many people, and that its potential for good is enormous. It acknowledges that the global market economy has clearly demonstrated great productive capacity, bringing the people of the world closer together, nurturing the sense that we are all part of a global community. Wisely managed, globalisation’s potential for good is enormous.
