TANZANIA’S TRADE IN TIMES OF COVID-19: AN ANALYSIS FOR THE AVOCADO, COFFEE, SPICES AND TEA SECTOR
This trade brief, compiled by EAC-EU MARKUP through the International Trade Centre (ITC), summarizes the situation of past, current and future trade of Tanzania in four key sectors, taking into account the unexpected turbulences brought upon by COVID-19.
COVID-19 has put world trade in unexpected turbulences with differing outcomes across countries and sectors. This trade brief summarizes the situation of past, current and future trade of Tanzania in four key sectors: avocado, coffee, spices and tea. It finds that exports are likely to remain resilient to the crisis due to a combination of Tanzania’s comparably positive economic outlook, a generally lower affectedness of agricultural exports and potential for further export growth in various markets. Risks relate to the strong focus on single and untransformed export items in these four sectors.
