I wonder why my fellow countrymen  flooding abroad and back  glorified opportunities in Tanzania.

Opportunities are always under our feet. We don’t have to go anywhere. All we need to do is to recognize and exploit them.

If you have been thinking to exploit opportunities in Tanzania, stay alert and you will start to notice five industries that have the most opportunity right now and have room to grow long in the future.

Let’s dive in.

1.Building And  Construction Sector
The surge  in the infrastructures investment (road, railway, and port.) creates immense small and large business opportunities.

Ongoing construction of the Dar es salaam-Mwanza- Kigoma standard gauge railway line that started in 2016 creates immense opportunities.

Not to mention the expansion of Dar es Salaam port, and construction of new roads and maintenance of existing one.

The strong emphasis on the infrastructure investment is the main driver for economic growth between 2017 to 2026.

The number of people who shift from rural to urban areas is doubled in Tanzania, This creates more room for business opportunities in Tanzania such as the construction of households, selling construction equipment, hardware. construction equipment leasing.And real estate business. Construction sector will work long in the future.

The saying, “money is in the soil” hold truth. This is a prosperous sector that has enormous opportunities for the entrepreneurs to exploit. As of writing the agriculture employ 65 percent of the population. It is a sector that employs many people than any other sector in Tanzania.

This creates business opportunities specifically in food crops such as maize, rice, selling and leasing agriculture equipment. Since food is a necessity, with a proper plan you can start food crops farming and reap substantial reward

In 2017, the revenue from the tourism sector was Us$ 2.69 billion and contributed 4.7 to the total GDP in the country. Improvement of the infrastructures, peace and political stability across the country are a drive for the tourism sector growth in Tanzania. If the tourism interest you, then you can join the league and enjoy the national cake.
