    Trend of Maize Production, Consumption and Trade in Tanzania from 1990-2011

    In Tanzanian exports and imports of maize are concentrated on a small set of partners. Western Europe and the USA are the major trading partners in terms of both exports and imports. Tanzania trades very little with other African countries, with total exports to other Sub-Saharan African countries accounting for less than 22% of all maize exports and 25% of all maize imports. Among African countries, Uganda and Malawi are important  sources  of maize, supplying 15% of imported maize. These trade patterns reflect a number of factors, including: historical ties, logistical costs, Tanzania’s myriad trade agreements and preferences, the barriers that Tanzania  places on its own imports and exports, as well as those barriers faced by its exports in other markets
