Tanzania is in the process of developing policies, laws and regulations to manage its petroleum resources. While much has been written about ‘right’ policies and legislation there is a growing recognition that implementation strategies have received less attention.
The purpose of this research component is to investigate what can be done with respect to the choice of tax regime and fiscal arrangements, given the political, institutional, and economic constraints prevailing in Tanzania.
- Intra-governmental fiscal relations
- Public-private sector interactions – interest groups and policy influence
- Public expectations and willingness to pay taxes and the government’s willingness to enforce taxes
