Serier – Country Economic ReportDescription:
Country Economic Report 2008:7 / This study on Tanzania is part of a series of annual studies, undertaken by various Swedish universities and academic research institutes in collaboration with Sida. The main purpose of these studies is to enhance our knowledge and understanding of current economic development processes and challenges in Sweden's main partner countries for development co-operation. The hope is also that they will have a broader academic interest and that the collaboration will serve to strengthen the Swedish academic resource base in the field of development economics. The study contains an analysis of the determinants of export in Tanzania in light of the changing composition of exports in the past years. This is followed by an analysis of the impact of trade reforms on employment and poverty. The report was prepared by Jörgen Levin and Mikael Ohlin at the Department of Economics at Örebro University.
