Abstract:The purpose of the present article is mainly to present empirical information about foreign investment in Tanzania, which will be useful to those interested in the Tanzanian political economy. The text puts the list of firms in context by shoving the historical setting in which investment has taken place in Tanzania, and by examining how much of total capital investment is foreign-owned. Foreign capital represents somewhere near one half of all investment in Tanzania. Diagrams of Lonrho's and of Amboni and Wigglesworth's network of operations in Tanzania are included in an appendix.
