SAIIA Policy Insights No 32, June 2016 

Published in Policy Insights

Migration and the movement of people have become a multi-dimensional challenge in Africa. In order to investigate this challenge, SAIIA, on behalf of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), has been undertaking a research study focusing on the immigration protocols within the three Regional Economic Communities making up the Tripartite Free Trade Area (TFTA). Tanzania, as the proposed host of the TFTA Secretariat, is an ideal place for engaging on these issues.

Foreign Direct Investment, and more specifically, how to foster a greater enabling environment for FDI, has also been a key area of focus for SAIIA. As part of ongoing research throughout SADC, and drawing on the experiences and lessons learnt from other countries in the region, SAIIA researchers will investigate and analyse the investment environment across four sectors in Tanzania: infrastructure, energy, agro-processing and retail.
