This study deals with some aspects of industrial development in Tanzania in the two last decades which the authors consider to be especially important. They adress mainly three groups of issues. First, choice and transfer of technology, technology policy, and the problems and implications of economies of scale. Second, the effects of foreign aid on industrial development in Tanzania. And third, the role of agriculture in industrial development. There is also a historical analysis of industrial development since independence and a critical assessment of the basic industry strategy (BIS) which was adopted as Tanzania's official industrialization strategy in 1975.
