Breakfast Debate

What it will take for Tanzania to Become a Developmental State

Submitted by Web Master on 25 February 2013

Although the Tanzania Development Vision 2025 calls for a ‘developmental mindset’ focusing on economic growth that is ‘private sector-led’ with the state facilitating ‘strategic investments’ and ‘selective industrial support,' it was questionable that this was being implemented.

This was noted by Brian Cooksey, an independent research professional who was the presenter at the Policy Forum breakfast talk held on the 22nd February, 2013. He based his presentation on Policy Forum's third Tanzania Governance Review.

Submitted by Web Master on 31 August 2012

The proportion of citizens involved in road accidents each year now exceeds the nation's annual population growth. Speaking at the August breakfast debate organized by Policy Forum, Mr. Josh Palfreman of the Amend.Org said, 3.4 % of the Tanzania's GDP is lost due to traffic accidents each year and the problem is increasing as since 2007, road deaths and injuries have increased by an average of 10%.

He added that, research indicates that 75% of accidents are caused by 'human factors' notably: careless driving, speeding and overtaking.
