Agriculture is Tanzania’s economy mainstay, contributing USD 13.9bn to its GDP

Posted on : Tuesday , 13th June 2017

With its land and water resources, motivated agricultural entrepreneurs, and access to international markets through a major port, Tanzania has excellent potential for agriculture-led economic growth. Furthermore, women account for 70 percent of those employed in the sector, allowing them to participate along the entire value chain and empowering them as beneficiaries. Tanzania’s climate is favorable for a variety of crops—and with improved seeds, productivity stands to rapidly increase, so this upward trend has been welcomed by the best global Food and Agriculture players, as they ready themselves for the return of Africa’s premier and most trusted Food, Hospitality and Agriculture trade exhibition.

Agriculture is Tanzania’s economy mainstay, contributing USD 13.9bn to its GDP (nearly 30%) and 67% to total employment during 2014. Agricultural land in Tanzania was last measured at 396,500sq.km in 2013 (45% of total land area) versus 369,744sq.km in 2008, representing an increase of 7% over the 5–year period.

In a bid to ensure production and supply of fertilizers in Tanzania, the Norwegian YARA International company, which produces fertilizers has announced to invest 80bn/- at the Port of Dar es Salaam so as to improve the business. The idea is likely to improve agriculture production in the country, since majority farmers will benefit from the huge investment. The Norwegian ambassador to Tanzania, Ms Hanne-Marie Kaarstad said his country is committed to boost agriculture sector in the country. This shows the growing opportunities in this sector and how the government, project developers and financers are working towards that growth.
