One of the challenges facing Tanzania is to attain inclusive growth that ensures equity in the society.
Non-inclusive growth manifests itself in several respects, such as increasing unemployment (particularly, youth unemployment), high and pervasive rural poverty, health inequalities and increasing income inequalities in the midst of high economic growth.
Promoting growth with equity requires a holistic approach to sustainable human development.
