LOW CONFIDENCE IN ECONOMY

by Ben Taylor

Though Tanzania has posted some enviable rates of economic growth in recent years – averaging around 7% in recent years – a new Africa-wide survey shows that Tanzanians are unconvinced by the state of the economy. The report, from Afrobarometer, found that Tanzanians were consistently much less positive about their country’s economic situation than people elsewhere on the continent.

Fewer Tanzanians (8%) were positive about the current state of the economy than in any other country. Twice as many Tanzanians said that they thought the economy had got worse in the past twelve months (51%) as said it had got better (25%). Fewer Tanzanians (22%) said that they expected the economy to improve in the coming twelve months than in any other country.
