Public debt sustainability and debt dynamics: The case of Tanzania

Maureen Were and Lekinyi Mollel

No wp-2020-112, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Rising public debt in sub-Saharan Africa remains a matter of concern. We provide an analysis of public debt and debt sustainability in Tanzania, focusing on external debt. Though current and previous analyses using the IMF-World Bank debt sustainability framework indicate low risk of public external debt distress, these analyses are sensitive to exchange rate volatility and export shocks and are predicated on strong assumptions of robust future economic growth and reduced government borrowing.
