It is indeed my great pleasure to present to you this National Five Year Development Plan (2011/12-2015/16) to implement the Tanzania Development Vision 2025. This Plan is the first in a series of three Five Year Development Plans, which aim at transforming Tanzania into a middle-income country by 2025. This is envisaged to happen through the targeting of strategic priority interventions to move Tanzania to a higher growth trajectory coupled with a shift from an agriculture-based to an industry-based economy. Furthermore, this growth momentum will have to be duly monitored in order to make sure its benefits are broadly shared and reflected in improved quality of life for the majority of Tanzanians. Employment creation, particularly for the youth, is also a critical cross-cutting target of this Plan. The overall theme of this Plan is to unleash Tanzania‟s growth potentials.
