1. Context: ICR Facility and project
The Investment Climate Reform (ICR) Facility is set up to support African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) partner countries and regional institutions in their private sector structured dialogue process to create a more conducive business environment and investment climate. It aims to improve the business environment and investment climate in these countries. The ICR Facility is a programme which is co-funded by the European Union (EU), the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF), together with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the British Council. It is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), the British Council, Expertise France, and Stichting Nederlandse Ontwikkelingsorganisatie (Netherlands Development Organisation, SNV).”

The ICR facility has three components of activities:

· Technical Assistance for Business Environment and Investment Climate Improvement
· Strengthening national and sub-regional development financial institutions
· Compile and mainstream lessons learned and good practices

In the context of its mandate, the ICR Facility seeks to provide technical assistance to the Confederation of Tanzania Industries (CTI). CTI is a Business Membership Organisation launched in 1991 with around 400 members paying dues and more than 10.000 firms represented. The aim of CTI is to ensure that there is a conducive legal, financial and business environment within which industry can operate effectively and become competitive to contribute to national wealth and development.

CTI organises the annual President’s Manufacturer of the Year Awards (PMAYA) competition to honour outstanding industries. During the 2021 PMAYA, the Vice President of Tanzania Dr. Philip Isdory Mpango, pointed out that the domestic industries are faced with challenges that make them uncompetitive. In this regard, CTI has requested technical assistance to study and improve the competitiveness of the manufacturing sector in Tanzania.

This study is aligned with the National Five-Year Development Plan III 2021/22 - 2025/26 under the theme, "Realising Competitiveness and Industrialisation for Human Development " which intends to build a competitive “semi-industrialised economy that can compete regionally and internationally” while “strengthening human development”.

Job Description
2. Objective of the request and implementation model

The objective of the request is to conduct a Growth Diagnostics exercise to help improve the competitiveness of the manufacturing sector in Tanzania. This assistance will be designed to be gender-inclusive and throughout the exercise the consultant should analyze the participation of both women and men in the economy as well as businesses and organizations owned/run by both women and men equally, as well as youth under 35 years old. The study should evaluate growth paths that are more environmentally sustainable for the manufacturing sector.

Growth Diagnostics
Growth Diagnostics exercises aim to identify the most binding constraints to a specific objective in the economy – for example private investment, economic growth, or export competitiveness – in a location or in a specific sector within a location, taking into account historical patterns of growth and testing all potential constraints limiting productivity.

The Growth diagnostics for the manufacturing sector in Tanzania
The deployment of the Growth Diagnostics framework to analyse the competitiveness of the manufacturing sector in Tanzania will provide a rigorous analytical base that will result in a prioritized strategy that will enable policymakers to focus their limited resources – economic means, political capital, and state capacity – in addressing the most relevant and impactful issues the industry faces.

The deliverable of the exercise will describe the deployment of the methodology and results for all factors related to the performance of the manufacturing sector in Tanzania, identifying the most binding constraints preventing the sector from being more competitive and outlining a preliminary policy plan to address these issues in an internally consistent manner.

The study includes rigorous data analyses based on available international and domestic databases (including at the country-company level). The Growth Diagnostic framework is not deployed in isolation. It will be done with a participatory approach through public-private dialogue: partial insights and deliverables must be iteratively socialized and validated with relevant domestic stakeholders in the manufacturing industry the government of Tanzania, as well as with government representatives, to produce a shared diagnosis.
