@Tajikistan:Economy

Economy - overview: Tajikistan has the lowest per capita GDP among the
15 former Soviet republics. Cotton is the most important crop. Mineral
resources, varied but limited in amount, include silver, gold,
uranium, and tungsten. Industry consists only of a large aluminum
plant, hydropower facilities, and small obsolete factories mostly in
light industry and food processing. The Tajikistani economy has been
gravely weakened by six years of civil conflict and by the loss of
subsidies from Moscow and of markets for its products. Tajikistan thus
depends on aid from Russia and Uzbekistan and on international
humanitarian assistance for much of its basic subsistence needs. Even
if the peace agreement of June 1997 is honored, the country faces
major problems in integrating refugees and former combatants into the
economy. The future of Tajikistan's economy and the potential for
attracting foreign investment depend upon stability and continued
progress in the peace process.

@Tanzania:Economy

Economy - overview: Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the
world. The economy is heavily dependent on agriculture, which accounts
for half of GDP, provides 85% of exports, and employs 90% of the work
force. Topography and climatic conditions, however, limit cultivated
crops to only 4% of the land area. Industry is mainly limited to
processing agricultural products and light consumer goods. The World
Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and bilateral donors have
provided funds to rehabilitate Tanzania's deteriorated economic
infrastructure. Growth in 1991-99 has featured a pickup in industrial
production and a substantial increase in output of minerals, led by
gold. Natural gas exploration in the Rufiji Delta looks promising and
production could start by 2002. Recent banking reforms have helped
increase private sector growth and investment. Short-term economic
progress also depends on curbing corruption.
