ABSTRACT

This study reviews economic development process and economic reforms, and poverty reduction strategies of Tanzania. Its public expenditure, economic growth, and other sectoral performances are mainly discussed using pooled time-series and cross-region data. Tanzania is one of poorest countries in East Africa. Like many other African countries, most of its budge is financed by donors, which leads to high dependence on foreign aid. Despite its effort, it is becoming harder for Tanzania to escape from poverty. Considering the trend in its public spending, Tanzania continues to increase investments in agriculture, roads, and education. However, it does not reach the international standard in terms of poverty reduction through economic performances. For a future success in poverty reduction, Tanzania needs to reconstruct the country by increasing in income and living standard, establishing good governance arrangements, preventing corruption, and building effective public-private partnerships.
