Market Challenges
Last published date:

Among the major challenges U.S. firms experience in doing business in Tanzania include bureaucracy, corruption, and underdeveloped infrastructure. There is a slow pace of decision making at various levels creating a room for corruption to fast track one’s request.

The government is taking necessary measures to ensure these problems are solved and one of the ways it has done is to introduce IT systems where businesses can log in and receive services they require at the quickest time possible.

Tanzania also has put infrastructure as its top agenda.  Since 2015, the country embarked in ambitious projects such as Nyerere Hydro Power Plant, construction of a Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) system and improvements of roads & airport systems.
