Investment guide of the Mwanza region in Tanzania, as published by the Tanzanian regional government
The Mwanza region is located on the southern side of Lake Victoria and is one of the most important economic zones in Tanzania. The main source of income to the region are fisheries on lake Victoria. Fish stocks in this lake are however under pressure and catches have been decreasing in recent years.
Investment possibilities could be present in agro-processing and packaging and supply chain management facilities. Care should be taken when investing in the fish processing market, as this has been identified in the Regional Investment Guide as oversaturated due to the low catches.
