In the first decade of the new millennium, Tanzania’s gross domestic product doubled in real terms, making it one of the handful of sub-Saharan economies that have shown strong and sustained growth in recent years. This growth was, moreover, broad based, with manufacturing output growing slightly faster than the economy as a whole. To maintain this rate of growth over the next decade, Tanzania’s industrial capabilities will need to advance in a quite substantial way. The foundations for this advance lie in the current capabilities of Tanzania’s industrial companies. The purpose of this volume is to set out a detailed description, industry by industry, of those capabilities. Along the way, we explore a series of questions. • Where did Tanzania’s current industrial capabilities originate? • To what extent are Tanzanian firms held back by problems of access to land? • Will it be possible to successfully integrate Tanzanian companies into the supply chains of the oil and gas sector?
