Abstract:The problem analysed in this paper is the partnership relations between the public corporations in an underdeveloped country and the multinational corporations based in the developed countries. Special reference is made to the Tanzanian situation. What form does this association between local public capital and foreign private capital take? What are the benefits and/or losses derived by each partner? The author concludes that the net effect of the partnership is that the public corporation, instead of being a vehicle of economic development, becomes a vehicle for economic underdevelopment. Sections: Economic development and underdelopment in Africa - Forms of partnership - Why partnership? - The partnership: benefits to multinational corporations - The partnership: losses to the public corporations - Conclusion.
