Tanzania stable and making progress.
The social sophistication of its citizens stems from the fact that the country is one of the most ethnically diverse in the world. In spite of that fact, in recent years Tanzania has managed to hold three peaceful multi-party elections to provide a foundation for its growing democracy.
An October 10, 2007 press release from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) presents many positive observations of Tanzania's economy, specifically its recent macroeconomic performance. "Tanzania's economic performance continues to be strong. Fueled by a rebound in the agricultural sector and improved electricity supply, economic growth reached 6,75 percent in 2006/07 and is on track to exceed 7.0 percent in 2007/08." This coexists with a labor force that is made up of 98 percent informal workers.
A May 2007 report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), though, describes a number of challenges for the country's infrastructure including water, sanitation, and electricity. Corruption is also a major problem.
