The Five Year Development Plan
The Tanzania Five Year Development Plan was launched in June 2011 by the President of the United Republic of Tanzania Hon. Jakaya Kikwete. The Plan aims at unleashing Tanzania’s latent growth potential in becoming a middle income country as envisaged in the Vision 2025. It targets a real growth rate of 8 per cent during the next five years setting the foundation for a higher growth of 10 per cent from 2016 to 2025. In achieving these objectives the Plan focuses on five key priority areas: infrastructure, agriculture, industry, human capital and tourism. The current Five Year Development Plan is one of the three such Plans under the Long Term Perspective Plan.
