The manufacturing sector in Tanzania remains relatively small, with most activities concentrating on the creation of simple consumer products such as foods, beverages, tobacco, textiles, furniture and wood allied products. In spite of its declining size, however, the sector continues to be of considerable importance to the Tanzania economy as is still one of the most reliable sources of government revenue in terms of import sales as well as for both corporate and income taxes, accounting for over half of the annual government revenue collection.

In 1986, the Tanzania government made the decision to liberalize trade and investment policies within the country. Many firms began to fail because they could not stand up to competition from import manufacturers. Therefore, with this in mind, a number of measures were taken to increase both the competitiveness of the local industries and their ability to penetrate the export markets. In the early 1990s, the government launched a program that was designed to restructure and privatize the publicly owned enterprises. Between 1990 and the turn of the 21st Century, the general use of the installed industrial capacities rose from an average of 20% to approximately 50% as a result of the launch of this program. This section provides you with information pertaining industrial development program, its strategic plan and reports. You can download for your own use.
