Confronting New Realities: Reflections on Tanzania's Radical Transformation
In 1986, Tanzania agreed with the IMF and the World Bank to pursue robust social and economic reforms in light of the serious decline in the performance of the economy, with the objective of achieving sustainable economic growth. At a political level, a multi-party system was introduced, and the first multi-party elections held since 1962 took place in 1995, and again in 2005. This book examines in considerable depth the political and economic changes that have taken place in this period of reform. It highlights both the achievements and the challenges that remain, particularly those brought about by new and dynamic phase of globalisation in areas such as trade and investment. The author articulates perspectives on the democratisation and governance trajectories the country should pursue to attain a more prosperous economic status, whilst sustaining the unity, peace and diversity that have characterised the country since independence.
