In the past decade, Tanzania has
experienced high economic growth and it is in the global
limelight as a recent success story in Africa. A variety of
factors have contributed to this success, including
liberalized policies and reforms, infusion of external
capital from development partners and the private sector,
debt cancellation, and a strong performance by emerging
sectors such as mining, tourism, and fisheries. Its social
policies, largely influenced by the First President Julius
Kambarage Nyerere, including a single national language and
relative political stability have contributed to a strong
sense of nationhood, which sets it apart from many of its
neighbors and has provided an unusual degree of stability
that has facilitated major economic transformation without a
significant social backlash.
