Core Views

Tanzania's economy will see real growth of 6.9% in 2015 and 7.3% in 2016. Our 2015 forecast has been revised down in the wake of the power scandal troubling the country's government, which has led to funds being withheld by international donors. Rising uncertainty over future energy policy in Tanzania runs the risk of pushing back crucial investment into the offshore gas sector. Although we believe that CCM will win the October 2015 elections, a united opposition will lead to increasing resource nationalism in campaigning.
Monetary policy in Tanzania, executed primarily through open market operations and sales of foreign exchange, will continue to be relatively tight in 2015 as the Bank of Tanzania looks to bring in inflation. It will be aided in this aim by falling global oil prices.

Major Forecast Changes

Real GDP growth in 2015 has been revised down from 7.3% to 6.9%.

Although we believe that CCM will win the October 2015 elections, a united opposition will lead to increasing resource nationalism in
campaigning.

Long-Term Political Outlook 10
Corruption And Reliance On Foreign Money High On The Agenda 10
Tanzania will continue to enjoy broad political stability over the coming decade, with little to suggest that the ruling Chama Cha
Mapinduzi party's authority will be threatened. That is not to say the 201 5-202 3 period will be without challenges. Chief among these
will be dealing with high levels of corruption and addressing the country's dependence on foreign aid.

TZS: Looking Technically And Fundamentally Weak 15
The Tanzanian shilling is looking weak as withheld funding from international donors has prompted a break through major technical
support. Even if the funds are released, we forecast ongoing depreciation against the US dollar.

Monetary policy in Tanzania, executed primarily through open market operations and sales of foreign exchange, will continue to be
relatively tight in 2015 as the Bank of Tanzania looks to bring in inflation. It will be aided in this aim by falling global oil prices.

Delays To Budget Support Threaten Economic Growth 19
The withholding of general budget support aid by international donors increases risk to economic growth in Tanzania, as it is public
investment that will suffer.
