BMI View: Tanzania's construction and infrastructure sector outlook is buoyant over our 10-year forecast period to 2024, although we expect 2015 to present a number of challenges to investment and have dropped our real growth forecasts accordingly - from 9.9% to 7.9%. Broad investor sentiment will be boosted by USD500mn in foreign budget support - withheld following a power sector scandal in late 2014. In the long-term, regional transport development and power sector projects will be key growth drivers.

There are number of key developments, which underpin our upbeat medium-term forecast scenario:

The Tanzanian government plans to float a USD1bn eurobond for FY15/16. The proceeds will be used to finance the country's mega infrastructure projects. According to Finance and Economic Affairs Minister Saada Mkuyu, the government is fully prepared to float the Eurobond by March 2016 and will outline the main projects to be financed by the bond in the next Budget. Tanzania's successful issuance of the Eurobond will help the country in its quest to become East Africa's economic hub. Some of the projects initiated by the country include Bagamoyo port construction, expected to start operating in July.

Our view over the proliferation of intermodal and urban rail projects across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) continues to play out. We have seen persistent efforts by governments - nationally and internationally - to boost interconnectivity and address the chronic congestion in cities across the continent. Structural changes in economic patterns in the region are driving the development of the project pipeline. While rail projects for the export of commodities will continue to be a source of opportunity, particularly in Southern African coal producing markets, lower commodity prices will see a gradual shift of rail demand drivers towards the transportation of people and goods. Rapid urbanisation, rising incomes and a small, but growing middle class, will support further investment...
