The Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) Cluster Competiveness Programme (CCP) is a three year program organized through the multi-donor trust fund managed by the World Bank with funding from DFID and DANIDA. The aim is to improve the competiveness of Tanzanian economy in food processing, horticulture, and tourism. The ultimate purpose of the Cluster Competitiveness Project is sustainable increased competitiveness of strategic clusters of Tanzanian private enterprises.
TPSF-CCP provides assistance through a combination of industry specific training, institutional capacity building of associations and universities, improved public private dialogue between government and industry, and grants targeted at industry gaps.
Competitiveness largely refers to the productivity a company, industry cluster, or an entire country achieves. This can be measured by the prices realized against the cost to produce – the higher the ratio, the more productive the company, industry, and/or country. A cluster is a group of companies and associated institutions working in a common industry, usually benefiting from being located in the same geographic region.
