The Global Competitiveness Index 2012–2013: Country Profile: Tanzania

01 Nov

Tanzania is ranked 120th this year. Tanzania benefits from public institutions characterized by a relative evenhandedness in the government’s dealings with the private sector (56th) and government regulation that is not seen as overly burdensome (58th). In addition, some aspects of the labor market lend themselves to efficiency, such as a high female participation in the labor force (5th) and reasonable redundancy costs.(Click & zoom the image for a clear view)

On the other hand,  infrastructure in the country is underdeveloped (132nd), with low-quality roads and ports and an unreliable electricity supply. And although primary education enrollment is commendably high, providing universal access, enrollment rates at the secondary and university levels are among the lowest in the world (both at 137th place). In addition, the quality of the educational system needs upgrading. A related area of concern is the low level of technological readiness in Tanzania (122nd), with very low uptake of ICT such as the Internet and mobile telephony. In addition, the basic health of its workforce is also a serious concern; the country is ranked 113th in this area, with poor health indicators and high levels of diseases. (Click & zoom the image for a clear view)
