Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA)

The Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA) was established in 1988. It was initiated with the support of the Tanzanian Government to strengthen the private sector. The establishment of the TCCIA was an important step in moving on from a centralized, planned economy towards a more open, mixed economy giving full scope to privately owned enterprises and farms. TCCIA has opened regional offices in all 21 regions of mainland Tanzania and over 90 district centres, which are autonomous in their operational activities.
