888. Tanzania in Brief-april 2004
  Wednesday, July 21, 2004  by Admin
  Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world. Per capita income in 2004 is estimated to be at about US$282. Life expectancy at birth dropped from 50 years in 1990 to only 43 years in 2002. Infant mortality remains relatively high with 104 per 1,000 in 2001 (102 in 1990)...
889. FEWS Tanzania Food Security Report - 28 May 2004
  Monday, July 19, 2004  by Admin
  Livestock prices are generally rising due to two factors. First, livestock conditions are currently better, having improved from stress caused by water and browse shortages last year. Second, livestock supplies in markets have declined because livestock keepers (many of whom have started cultivating at least a little land in recent years) are currently depend on cereals from their own harvests rather than the market; and at the same time, lower cereal prices mean that those still depending on markets can survive a lot longer on the sale of one bull....
890. FEWS Tanzania Food Security Report 22 Dec 2003 - Drought relief needs only partly met
  Monday, July 19, 2004  by Admin
  The vuli rains have performed poorly in several northern locations, raising concerns about poor crop performance and a prolonged period of food shortages without outside help. Drought relief interventions have remained inadequate. The government has only released 52 percent of the maize planned for subsidized sale to food insecure households. Tanzania has received donor contributions for only 60 percent of the food aid needed for food for farming activities and only 30 percent of seed aid requirements. No fertilizer aid has been received. Wholesale maize prices in urban markets have either stabilized at higher levels or kept on increasing in other markets. The food security outlook is not promising because plans to mitigate the effects of drought are not yet fully implemented, a problem compounded by the failure of the vuli rains....
891. Creating a Conducive Policy Environment for Employment Creation in Micro and Small Enterprises in Tanzania
  Wednesday, July 14, 2004  by Admin
  The assessment of the policy environment for small enterprises in Tanzania is based on a careful mapping of existing laws and regulations. Despite small enterprise dominating the landscape in Tanzania, this sector can be characterized as survivalist and providing poor quality employment. The situation is aggravated by the policy and legal framework in which they operate. The study shows the encumbrances placed upon them by laws and regulations, resulting in MSEs hiding from their obligations by operating in the informal sector.

893. Tanzania and Regional Trading Blocs
  Tuesday, July 13, 2004  by Admin
  Tanzania (through the various liberalizing reforms it has undertaken over the past decade or so) has consistently, - though cautiously –remained engaged with the global and regional marketplace. Through pursuing policies that support macroeconomic stability and enhanced private sector contribution in the economy, Tanzania has seen significant drops in inflation and cost of doing business, increases in cross border trade and inward investment and a relatively stable currency even if growth has been a modest annual average 4% in the past four years...
894. CTI wants problems that make local products costly addressed
  Monday, July 12, 2004  by Admin
