dc.description.abstract The report has derived its roots from the private investments which are triggered by the government policy to encourage investments from both domestic and foreign investments. Since domestic investments are founded by Tanzanians, then their contributions to the lives of Tanzanians were not very much the issue of concern. The presence of foreign investments calls for rationalization and equitable distribution of the profits gained in Tanzania to Tanzanians. The report has established the contributions which are currently gained and related them to the perceptions of Tanzanians about what they think should have been gained. This seemed to bring a gap in such a way that some Tanzanians do not believe to obtain any benefits from FDIs and others are dissatisfied by the amount of contributions given currently. The report has tried to analyse whether the contributions from FDIs are adequate in the eyes of common Tanzanians. In nutshell, the report shows that there is a gap between what is currently contributed and what is thought to be the rightful contributions to the nation and its people. The researcher has selected a methodology which captured data from three dimensions, that is, from the facilitators (TIC), from the foreign investors’ employees (Airtel Tanzania) and from normal citizens. The idea was to get the mix of ideas which can provide the accurate prevailing situation. The data has been analysed to provide the summary of ideas of respondents and the discussion of findings was focused to finding out the contributions of FDIs to Tanzanians through multiplier effects and evaluated its adequacy to the lives of Tanzanians based on value for money. The researcher has concluded and recommended on the best practises and policies which can be changed and laws enacted to administer foreign investments in such a way that the gap in perceptions about “should be contributions of FDIs” between the foreign investors, the government and general public is bridged. en_US
