Tanzania and the African Continental Free Trade Area: possible impacts, policy priorities and scoping of future support

Briefing/policy papers

Written by Prachi Agarwal, Dirk Willem te Velde

This briefing reviews how far Tanzania has come in the AfCFTA negotiation and implementation process, considers the possible impact of implementing the AfCFTA and suggests a range of measures to help with implementation and promote more beneficial impacts. It identifies key priorities and needs for Tanzania in the negotiation and implementation of the AfCFTA for possible support from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), through donor support programmes such as Supporting Investment and Trade in Africa (SITA). The analysis underpinning this briefing draws on in-country consultations with agencies and organisations in the public and private sector in Dodoma, Dar-es-Salaam and Arusha, and secondary data and literature reviews.
