The Government of Tanzania, through the President’s Office Planning Commission (POPC), has begun the process of preparing the second Five Year Development Plan (FYDP II) (2016/17 – 2020/21) focusing on the theme “Nurturing an Industrial Economy”. The POPC hopes to conclude the plan by June 2016.
The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) is providing analytical support to aid this process through its Supporting Economic Transformation (SET) programme. On Tuesday 6th October 2015, a workshop was convened in Dar es Salaam on to provide an opportunity for the POPC to outline their initial thinking and to enable discussion on emerging priority areas and potential means of implementation for the FYDP II, both informed by background research undertaken by the ODI and REPOA.
The workshop brought together a diverse range of stakeholders from both the public and private sectors in Tanzania and provided a valuable opportunity for consultation which was less prevalent in the first FYDP. Download the event report below.
