While most children go to school and the quality of education is improving, education outcomes in Tanzania remain very poor: only 7% of students reach the international benchmark in reading * Results less than 1 million are rounded to the nearest thousand. Results over 1 million are rounded to the nearest hundred thousand. fluency and 8% reach the benchmark for addition and subtraction skills. With the UK as the largest provider of Foreign Direct Investment in Tanzania, our work to strengthen the economy will create further investment opportunities for British business. At the same time, a stronger economy will help to manage the stability, migration and security risks associated with a large, young and disillusioned population.
