Why this is important: The Tanzania Economic Update is the World Bank Group’s flagship in-country report, published twice a year. It features two sections – Part One on the State of the Economy, and Part Two on a topic of strategic importance to the country. The latest report underscores the urgency for Tanzania to invest in its human capital, reflecting on the country’s low performance on the Human Capital Index (HCI).
The launch event will have participants from relevant Government agencies and ministries as well as key stakeholders from academia, civil society, private sector and development partners. A Panel Discussion featuring eminent stakeholders in this area will discuss the various actions needed for Tanzania to improve its HCI and overall human development.Distributed by APO Group on behalf of The World Bank Group.
