Strong economic growth continues in Tanzania despite recent harsh drought conditions. In the early 2000s, annual GDP growth averaged 6.6 percent and reached 5.0 percent in 2009. Agriculture is the most important sector for employment, economic growth, and export income. The sector performed well in recent years, reaching 10.6 percent in 2008. It is not clear whether this has translated into a reduction in the incidence of poverty. The last recorded national poverty rate was 35.7 percent in 2000, although the estimated rate for 2009 was 33.4 percent.
