1. About Tanzania Private Sector Foundation

Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) is the apex and umbrella organization for Tanzania's private sector organizations and businesses. It was founded in 1998 with 33 members but has since grown organically to over 400 direct members representing both Business Management Organisations and private corporations serving over 6 million Businesses in Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Since its inception, TPSF has been the Government's strategic partner and most trusted private sector organization, representing a unified voice of the private sector, advising the Government on policy formulation and policy reviews, and advocating for an enabling business and investment climate, all the while promoting private sector-led social and economic development in Tanzania.

2. Rationale Tanzania Private Sector Week 2024

The Tanzania Private Sector Week (TPSW) is an annual flagship celebration that plays a pivotal role in the business landscape of Tanzania. Organized by the Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) in collaboration with key private sector organizations.

TPSW, provides a platform for introspection, fostering reflection on the private sector's journey, challenges, and successes, which informs strategic decisions for the future. TPSW also promotes collaboration, enabling open dialogue among diverse stakeholders and facilitating partnerships that amplify the Private sector's impact. Tanzania Private Sector Week (TPSW) acknowledges the achievements and the role of the private sector, underscoring its pivotal role in economic growth and job creation.

Furthermore, TPSW showcases the resilience of Tanzanian businesses, inspiring innovation and a forward-thinking mindset. It elevates the visibility of the private sector's positive influence on the communities. By envisioning the future, TPSW guides stakeholders in adapting to policies, emerging trends, and technologies. Ultimately, the celebration of TPSW serves as a catalyst for economic growth, fostering an environment where businesses can thrive, investments can flourish, and the nation's economy prospers.

Previously the Tanzania Private Sector Day (TPSD) rapidly evolved into a prominent event bringing together more than 1000 CEOs, business leaders, and captains of industries from across Tanzania and the broader region. The event's resounding success underscores its significance in promoting private sector development and catalyzing economic growth. The Tanzania Private Sector Week is intended to be an elevation of this structure to significantly place the Tanzania private sector on a pedestal it deserves for being a key contributor to the growth of the economy.

TPSW holds a paramount significance, as it aligns with the momentous 25th anniversary of TPSF, marking a quarter-century of unwavering commitment to Tanzania's private sector growth. This convergence aims to facilitate an inclusive dialogue that assesses the progress made over the past 25 years and envisages the trajectory of the Tanzanian private sector in the years ahead.
