This review evaluates Tanzania's current policy situation and makes recommendations for enabling the country to attract higher investment so as to exploit its full potential and become a regional trade and investment hub.

The review finds that, while private investment in Tanzania has considerably risen since the early 1990s, further progress can be made to improve the business climate and attract more investment in key sectors, such as infrastructure and agriculture.

he review is based on the OECD Policy Framework for Investment and undertaken within the framework of the OECD Africa Investment Initiative with the support of the Government of the United States.
