PRIVATIZATION IN TANZANIA

WithGeorge Mbowe

The purpose of this chapter is to examine the limited experience of Tanzania in its privatization policy and implementation. Specifically, the chapter surveys some of the constraints and impacts consequential to the adoption of the policy of the parastatal sector reform. The chapter attempts to provide in a nutshell the background to the government policy statement on parastatal sector reform of December 1991 which was issued by the Minister of Finance on 8 January 1992.
