THE World Economic Forum (WEF) has listed Tanzania top in inclusive economy among African countries in 2018.
Inclusive growth is economic growth that creates opportunity for all segments of the population and distributes the dividends of increased prosperity, both in monetary and non-monetary terms, fairly across society.
