Investment in Southern Africa and Tanzania


SAIIA and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) hosted a Policy Dialogue, to revisit the investment climate in Southern Africa, with a particular focus on Tanzania.

This follows on previous related work conducted last year in Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Angola and South Africa. The conference brought together all the relevant policy makers and stakeholders to discuss the current status of investment and to make sustainable policy recommendations that will help promote economic development in the region, with specific case studies from Tanzania.

The event focused on regional investment themes and trends, including:

  • Investment in infrastructure in Southern Africa;
  • Investing in energy and private sector participation in this sector;
  • Private sector’s role in developing regional value chains; and
  • Developing policy for sustainable investment.

This conference included presentations from a range of experts from these sectors, followed by respondents.
