Agricultural Sector Achievements Of The Third Phase Government 1995 - 2005

Agriculture occupies a very important place in the lives of Tanzanians as well the national economy. It provides full time employment to over 70 per cent of the population as well as the bulk of the food we consume. It is estimated that Tanzania enjoys 100 per cent self-sufficiency in food and, in better years, is a net exporter of grains and cereals.

Agriculture's contribution to GNP averages 50 per cent while bringing in approximately 66 per cent of foreign exchange apart from providing raw materials for local industries.

Available data indicates that rural Tanzanians are poorer than their urban compatriots, and since agriculture is the main activity there, it can be used to alleviate poverty in the country. For the sector to fulfil its role of feeding the nation and fighting poverty, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security estimates that it must grow by 10 per cent annually.
