Tanzania is an emerging economy with a very high growth potential. Whilst the economy is relatively diversified, a number of opportunities remain untapped in many sectors. These investment opportunities have been divided into two categories: the Lead Sectors and the Priority sectors. The Lead Sectors include: Agriculture and Agro-based Industries; Mining; Petroleum and Gas; Tourism, and Infrastructure.
The Priority Sectors include: Energy, Manufacturing, Chemical Industries, Natural Resources (Fishing & Forestry), Construction and Real Estate Development, Management Consultancy, Human Resource Development (Hospitals, Health Centers, and Educational Facilities), Radio and Television Broadcasting and Export Oriented Projects.
These categories and their respective investment opportunities have been detailed by the Tanzania Investment Centre (TIC), which is the primary agency of government assigned to coordinate, encourage, promote and facilitate investment in Tanzania – www.tic.co.tz
