The Council has developed the National Multisectoral Strategic Framework for Economic Empowerment (NMSFEE) that is aimed at coordinating all sectors and stakeholders of economic empowerment in proper performance of their responsibilities in ensuring the meaningful participation of Majority Tanzanians in the ownership and management of their country’s economy.
The Tanzania’s Development Vision envisages that by the year 2025, a large segment of the economy will be owned by Tanzanian citizens. Realization of this goal involves a two-sided simultaneous process of empowering Tanzanians economically; creation of favourable business environment which is effectively competitive domestically and internationally, on one side; and availing equal opportunities to all social groups of citizens to develop economically, on the other side. It is against this background that the National Economic Empowerment Act was enacted in 2004; and subsequently, establishment of the National Economic Empowerment Council (NEEC) to oversee deliberate and affirmative action and measures undertaken by the Public and the Private sector, for the purpose of promoting and enhancing knowledge, skills, economic prowess and financial prudence of Tanzanians. The ultimate goal of these measures is to enable Tanzanians to participate meaningfully in economic activities. As such, the envisaged economic empowerment process is a multisectoral task which calls for a strategic framework for team work and joint effort. This document is thus the National Multisectoral Strategic Framework for Economic Empowerment.
Objectives of the NMSFE
The NMSFE is needed to synchronize the roles of all the stakeholders of economic empowerment in Tanzania including specific activities to be undertaken, expected outcomes, modality and mechanism of collaboration, and outcome indicators for monitoring and evaluation. The framework will harmonize planning and coordination of sectoral economic empowerment activities.
NMSFEE’S IMPLEMENTATION GUIDELINES
Implementation of the National Economic Empowerment Policy is Multisectoral and Multilevel activity. In this regard NEEC developed the National Multisectoral Strategic Framework for Economic Empowerment (NMSFEE) which addresses participation of all sectors in the implementation process. To complement this Framework especially in the multisector coordination the NEEC has also developed a comprehensive multilevel coordination tool that guides the coordination of implementation of NMSFEE from National to the family levels. This is the NMSFEE’s Implementation Guidelines (Mwongozo wa Utekelezaji wa Mkakati wa Taifa wa Uwezeshaji Wananchi Kiuchumi).
