 Description

IFC—a
member of the World Bank Group—is the largest global development
institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets. We work
in more than 100 countries, using our capital, expertise,

-and influence
to create markets and opportunities in developing countries. In fiscal
year 2020, we invested $22 billion in private companies and financial
institutions in developing countries, leveraging the power of the
private sector to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity. For
more information, visit www.ifc.org.

Creating Markets Advisory for
Africa (CMA) is a Global Practice of the International Finance
Corporation that combines expertise in the financial sector with
expertise in private sector development to foster private sector led
growth and help create markets in client countries. Through this work,
IFC strengthens the WBG’s evolving advisory approach to development
finance: to maximize finance for development and to leverage private
sector investments for sustainable and inclusive growth.  

With
the largest economy and population in the East Africa Community (EAC),
Tanzania has attained a lower middle-income country status but
struggling to improve economic productivity that would create enough
jobs for its fast-growing youth population. Transformation to a more
modern industrialized economy that would accelerate job growth and
higher incomes requires the strengthening of investment climate and
conducive government policies for increasing private investment and
entrepreneurship. Support to financially inclusive, gender-empowered
private sector growth agenda is enshrined in the Systematic Country
Diagnosis (SCD) and Country Partnership Framework (CPF), and at the
heart of IFC dialogue with the authorities.  The timing of this
assignment is critical to support the client’s commitment to structural
reforms necessary to unlock economic growth, by strengthening the Bank’s
engagement and expert resources around financial and private sector
development and competitiveness issues.

The Investment
Climate Advisory Services (ICAS) technical assistance program in
Tanzania, implemented by IFC, aims to support the Government of Tanzania
(GoT) to promote sustainable and inclusive economic growth through
better economic foundations, increased trade and investment and business
growth support. The five-year program, which is formally titled, the
Tanzanian Business Enabling Environment Support (BEES) Program (the
“Program”) has a budget of $6.7 million USD which has been secured
through a trust fund supported by the Government of Canada, Department
of Foreign Affairs, Trade & Development (DFATD).
