Tanzania ranked as most inclusive economy in Sub-Saharan Africa by World Economic Forum

An inclusive economy gives more people the opportunity to equitably participate in national economic growth.

Tanzania has been ranked as top most inclusive economy in Sub-Saharan Africa index 2018, according to World Economic Forum (WEF).

Inclusive Development Index (IDI) is an annual assessment of 103 countries’ economic performance that measures how countries perform on eleven dimensions of economic progress in addition to GDP.

WEF measures growth and development, inclusion and intergenerational equity – sustainable stewardship of natural and financial resources as the three pillars.

An inclusive economy gives more people the opportunity to equitably participate in national economic growth, meaning compared to other Africans, Tanzanians have a better shot at reducing the rich verses poor gap.

Tanzania's major strengths of governance are in the areas of safety and rule of law, national security, participation, and human rights and gender while  its major weaknesses are in human development (health and education) and infrastructure.

The IDI is a project of the World Economic Forum’s System Initiative on the Future of Economic Progress, which aims to inform and enable sustained and inclusive economic progress through deepened public-private cooperation through thought leadership and analysis, strategic dialogue and concrete cooperation, including by accelerating social impact through corporate action.

The report found out that African economies have been resilient to negative shocks, yet poor infrastructure remains a key obstacle to the continent’s inclusive growth,

The report notes that Africa could be the next investment frontier and recommends international financial community adapt a policy of more negative real interest rates in high-income countries, use of excess savings to finance public investment in rich countries, and the facilitation of the flow of capital to developing countries.

The report estimates Africa’s infrastructure needs at $130–170bn annually.
