2003 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find an indication of how the Tanzanian textile industry experiences the institutions in the country, whether they are growth promoting and supporting for the textile sector, and further how these institutions affects the industry. The report will only take the institutional environment of the Tanzanian textile industry into consideration and will mainly focus on the years after the economic transition. A questionnaire has been designed to catch the attitudes from the three textile companies. The empirical results indicate that the institutions surrounding the textile industry are not well working. There are signs of high transaction costs, the legislation is not effective in protecting property rights, lack of trust in the contract right and difficulties to enter the industry. The country has problem with corruption, pirate copying and illegal importation. Something that does not seem to affect the textile industry significantly is the social and cultural differences.
