About Dodoma

Dodoma Region is a newly unfolding investment and business opportunity. The region has a population of 2,312,141 in 2017. It lies in the heart of Tanzania in the Eastern-Central part of the country, being about 300 miles (480 kilometres) from the Indian Ocean coast. The region covers an area of 41,311 square kilometres and is bordered by four Regions namely Manyara, Singida, Iringa, and Morogoro.

The Region is also located along the Central Corridor of East Africa. The Central Corridor runs south of the Lake Victoria zone through Dodoma to the Dar es Salaam Port. Tanzania is rebuilding the efficacy of the central corridor as the transport hub and gateway for its neighbours to the world through modernization of infrastructure and overhauling of rule, regulations and procedures in the ports, inland transport and border posts.

This corridor comprises a network of roads and railways passing through the Lake Victoria zone to the south. Along this route, it also taps into East Africa’s most established mining region: the greenstone belts of Tanzania. Its farthest extension into the Democratic Republic of the Congo also taps into the limited mining activity in the Great Lakes region.

The regional development vision, which is “promoting Dodoma Region such that it becomes a new business hub and growth pole for the East and Central African Economic Region” is congruent and so guided by the values and virtues of the Tanzanian Development Vision 2025. Principally, Tanzania has vowed to graduate from group of Low Economic Developing Countries into a Middle Income Group of Countries by the turn of 2025. Coherently, it has identified the pathway to this transition through sustained high economic growth coupled with economic transformation, particularly through agricultural modernization and industrialization
