The EABC noted that foreign direct investments from the US. to Tanzania stood at US$1.5 billion in 2019, a 5.2 per cent increase from 2018. Tanzania is followed by Kenya – which received US$353 million in the same year – followed by Uganda US$42 million, Rwanda (US$11 million) and Burundi, which managed to attract US$1 million in the same year (2019).

Tanzania has managed to secure the US. as a development partner and as a viable investment in potential sectors such as mining and agriculture. President Samia has worked to give the investment landscape 180 shifts, particularly enhancing the domestic and international confidence in Tanzania’s business climate.

Over the past years, agricultural produce, minerals and textiles have covered most of the goods exported to the US. However, there are other avenues of potential investment in Tanzania, especially in oil and gas, real estate, manufacturing and telecommunications.

The government is already working on all issues facing Dangote’s factor on President Suluhu’s directives. This means Tanzania is reshuffling its strategies and operations along the investment lines, to keep up with the rest of the region far ahead of her.

As a country that graduated to a low-middle-income level much more effort towards building sound and attracting an investment environment is required.

The current small achievements prove that there is more coming from President Suluhu’s administration in terms of advancing more foreign investment in the country.
