Project Objectives

1. Rationale for the Study: The overall objective of the EPZ study is to gather and analyze pertinent data with respect to creating an enabling environment for EPZ in Tanzania and to make recommendations to the Government of Tanzania, which will assist it in deciding on the viability of such export processing zone programme. In exploring the viability of EPZs in Tanzania, the Government is not only bent on broader export incentives than those currently being offered in the country, but will also ensure that the EPZ regime offers opportunities to attract and retain export-oriented foreign investment. 2. Specific objectives : The specific objective of the study is to determine the potential for setting up export processing zones in the country by carrying out a techno-economic feasibility study, which will serve GOT as a decision -making tool.
