Title: Sustaining and Sharing Economic Growth in Tanzania
Authors: Robert J. Utz
Keywords: Local Development
Issue Date: 2008
Description: This book is designed to contribute to the government’s thinking on how best to translate broad MKUKUTA policy objectives into practical tactics and programs well suited to Tanzania’s economic priorities and to the removal of key institutional and infrastructure bottlenecks. The volume aims to respond to three fundamental questions: (a) what factors explain Tanzania’s recent acceleration in economic growth, (b) how well has the accelerated growth translated into reduced poverty, and (c) what needs to be done to sustain growth that is also pro-poor. It gives me great personal satisfaction to note the important achievements to date in Tanzania and to know that the World Bank Group has contributed to these in some small measure. Clearly much more remains to be done before Tanzania is on an established path to sustained and shared economic growth, but I am confident the authorities, in partnership with the private sector, will continue to progress. Tanzania can meet its poverty reduction goals assuming enlightened leadership maintains the strong commitment to its growth and poverty reduction agenda and ensures a clear, strong, and effective partnership with the private sector.
