Tanzania’s annual GDP growth rate of 6.3% over the past 10 years (2010-2019) placed the country among the 20 fastest growing economies in the world, beating the Sub-Saharan Africa average GDP growth rate of 3.5% during the same period.

However, the GDP growth rate has been slowing down in recent years, from a peak of 7.9% in 2011.
