Don’t just put them without explanation.The three terms to me we are like water and oil,hatuelewani kamwe

GDP nominal,GDP capita, blablaaah,So what do you want us to make out of this jargon?

I think inamaanisha pesa kila mtu anafaa kupewa na gava.

Tz has overtaken us on GPP

Yes, and they are expected to catch up in per capita ppp in 5 yrs, about time we accepted no. 3 position around these shores

GDP PPP - Gross domestic product purchasing power parity. It is GDP converted to purchasing power using USD. Example , kenya has higher GDP to Ethiopia. This does not mean a Kenyan earning slightly higher than an Ethiopian is necessarily richer. For instance , A cup of coffee in kenya will be 2 USD while in Ethiopia probably 1USD. Therefore although Ethiopia GDP is lower than Kenya’s, an Ethiopian citizen earning same as Kenyan has a higher purchasing power than his counterpart In Kenya .

Conclusion , cost of living is lower in TZ and Ethiopia than it is in Kenya.

Individuals richer in case of high GDP PPP, but not necessarily the country.

Depends kama ni food, rent, access to services etc. Kama Ethiopia kupata internet ni sida and calling rates are not cheap.

True, imported goods or services that depend on imported goods are very expensive if your are earning in such a currency

Can OP find stats from 4 years ago for the same so we can compare or at least give us a link to that website. Tanzania is doing good it seems.

Sudan? au tangu devaluation they dropped out of top 10?Ethiopia too did some serious devaluation last yrs,was it captured ?
Tz is expected to exit ldc in the nxt two yrs,with that goes tariff free EU markets ,then we can get progress in that trade agreement.

Sudan iko na $41 billion should be above Tunisia. We have overtaken Ethiopia on Nominal GDP, they were ahead of us last year, so yes, their currency woes have been factored.

Good job. Kenya not looking good. They warned us of return of grand corruption with and the evidence is right here. Magufuli we mock him but his numbers look better than ours.

Mbona sioni, growth ya Tz na yetu ni similar, Ethiopia ndio wameenda

I read it wrong. Seems we’re at the same level.
Lakini if you hear some Kenyans talking you would think Tanzania is 10 steps behind.
They also tell us that our economy is number 3 in sub sahara Africa.

you seem fixated on pushing a certain narrative that makes you skew data. There is no magic in whatever magufuli is doing,tz has not experienced faster growth rates under him as compared to kikwete despite what Ndii says. Mind you Tz is just as corrupt as kenya,we are just open in recognizing it.

I’m just looking at this numbers and wondering why Kenyans love to say we’re far ahead of Tanzania. And they don’t even have the size of debt we have.

Tz had their debt forgiven in 2010,they have already accumulated debt equivalent about 40% of their GDP in the ensuing period. Tz has bigger debt issues than us. Due to low tax compliance they only mobilize about 10% of GDP in taxes (Kenya is about 18%) meaning if they are to accomplish all those projects Magufuli is promising they have to borrow HEAVILY. Wee ngoja utasikia vituko.
