Enhancing the technological impact of FDI

Tanzania is one of the few African countries to have consistently given priority to science and technology in its national development strategy. Since the establishment of the Tanzania National Scientific Research Council (TNSRC) in 1969, policy guidelines for the promotion of science and technology have been formulated and implemented at the highest level of government machinery. 9 Despite concerted efforts, however, the level of local technological capability has so far remained low.
