Dar es salaam, Tanzania – Today the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) East Africa Trade and Investment Hub (the Hub) launched the Tanzania Investment Policy Assessment 2018 as part of the U.S.-Tanzania Policy and Innovation Forum held in Dar es Salaam.

“Through increased private sector investment, Tanzania can address critical infrastructure demands such as affordable energy for all and transportation network, while simultaneously building local human capital, which will push Tanzania into middle-income status and beyond," said Charge d' Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Dr. Inmi Patterson (pictured above).
