1 April 2020 - As the world continues fighting against the spread of Covid-19, it has started impacting the Tanzanian economy and may result in a decline in production. Cases of Covid-19 in the country have risen to 20 as the government struggles to contain the spread of the disease. This outbreak has started affecting the country's economy as some  manufacturers have begun experiencing disruptions in production.

They source their raw materials from countries affected by Covid-19, like China and India, and are unable to get these materials due to restrictions in transportation. This will have a significant impact on the sales and profits of the manufacturing firms. The Tanzania Private Sector Foundation has requested its members to assess the effects of Covid-19 on all its groups such as agriculture, financial institutions, industrial production, and others. This assessment will allow the government to take the required measures to bring these sectors back to their normal growth.  Please fill out our survey on  Life and Work during a Pandemic in Tanzania

25 March 2020 - As a precautionary effort to protect the interests of the workers, the Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) urged its members to refrain from using the COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) pandemic as a pretext to lay off workers. Ms. Angelina Ngalula, the Chairperson, said that the world was passing through a challenging period that calls for rational actions by employers. She compelled the Tanzanian employers to work together and fight the challenges brought by the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic rather than using it as an excuse for firing workers. She also stated that all Tanzanians should continue working while taking all the necessary safety measures against the pandemic. Dr. Aggrey Mlimuka, the Chief Executive Officer of the Association of Tanzanian Employers (ATE), said that this was not the right time for locking people indoors as the effects would be catastrophic on jobs and the economy.
