Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


In our group, it has been decided to write about the growth in Africa. We believe a conflict can be seen between the year of focus to effort an improvement in Africa’s growth and the lack of change. However it is to be seen that there is a noticeable change compared to the time minimal effort spent. As case we have chosen to look at the conditions of establishing further expanding, development and growth of one of the poorest countries in the world, Tanzania. We have chosen to look into the extern and intern factors, to determine the possibilities of development and growth. These factors include trade restrictions and cooperation’s between EU and Africa, as well as the intern relations in Tanzania. Dependency, modernization and economic theories as well as interdependence and imperialistic concepts have been used to analyse and interpreted these factors. A report from the Danish Foreign Affairs, that deals with the politics between Denmark and Tanzania, has been used to in conjunction with the before mentioned theories to analyse the intern relations in Tanzania. The EU-commission has been used as a starting point for the analysis of the extern factors, such as trade policies. There has been focused on the development and growth efforts as well as the trade agreements, have been made by the commission, throughout the length of the cooperation between EU and Africa. From the discussion and analysis in the report it can been concluded, that Tanzania’s growth and development opportunities, are closely linked to the trade agreements between EU and Africa. The intern factors in Tanzania affect these opportunities as well. These intern factors include unemployment, politic instability, population growth, supply and demand, corruption, lack of technologic development as well and the knowledge of the implementation of this concept in all sectors. The conclusion is, that to create further development in Tanzania, it needs to rid themselves of their dependence on the centre countries and the world economy and instead focus on intern trading as well as trading within Africa. This will result in larger demand in the country. Higher demand would then result in more jobs, and this increase in jobs would push the country towards the beginning of industrialization and a modernization process towards a more developed society with less poverty.
