The World Bank Group recognizes the critical importance of women's contribution to shared economic growth, especially in Africa. Women's important contribution to economic activity in Tanzania is well recognized: In the 2006 World Economic Forum Global Gender Gap report Tanzania was ranked number 1 globally, out of 115 countries, in terms of women's economic participation. This paper includes the following headings: gender and economic growth in Tanzania; starting and closing a business; access to land and site development; access to finance; operating a business -- taxation, infrastructure, and access to day care; labor laws -- how they affect women; access to commercial justice; access to international trade; and the way forward.
