DAR ES SALAAM (Reuters) - Tanzania’s economy is forecast to grow at 7.3 percent in 2019, from an estimated 7.2 percent last year, helped by public infrastructure investments and favourable weather, a central bank report said.

“Real GDP is estimated to grow by 7.2 percent in 2018 and 7.3 percent in 2019, supported by public investment, particularly implementation of mega infrastructure projects ... and expected favourable weather conditions,” the report said.
