Tanzania Fastest Growing Economy In East Africa In 2014

According to Deloitte's “Northeasterly Bearing Economic Outlook 2014” report, Tanzania was the fastest growing economy in East Africa in 2013 with a GDP growth of 6.9%. The agricultural sector, which accounts for half of the national income, grew by an estimated 4.3%. This has been driven by an increased production of the major food crops such as maize, paddy, millet/sorghum and cassava.

During the same year microeconomic indicators of the other East African countries mentioned in the report (namely Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda) were the following:

Kenya had a GDP growth of 5.1% and an inflation that was successfully reduced to 5.7% at the end of 2013 and revamped to 6.4 % in April 2014. Uganda had a GDP growth of 5.8% in 2013 and an inflation of 5.9 % at the end of 2013 that was revamped to 6.9% in January 2014. Rwanda had a 6.5% GDP growth in 2013 and inflation of 4.2% at the end of 2013. According to the forecasts included in the report based on BOT and International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates, Tanzania GDP is expected to reach 8.2% in 2014 and 8.1% in 2015.

Tanzania Agricultural GDP Grew By 3.4%
According to the recently published Growth Africa 2014 Report, Tanzania Agricultural GDP Grew By 3.4% in 2011. In 2013 1,049 new jobs in agriculture were created, with $9.7 million of investments made in the sector. growafrica-tanzania-report. The report indicates that Tanzania is favorably endowed with a rich natural resource base to support agriculture development, including a huge potential for irrigated agriculture. Yet the sector attracts the least shares of foreign direct investment (FDI) stock despite impressive inflows of FDI to Tanzania. However with the renewed focus and drive to accelerate investment in priority value chains that the Big Result Now (BRN) initiative has injected, Tanzania is well-positioned to achieve the big results in agricultural growth it aims to secure.
