Tanzania’s Coal Export Jumps By 972%

Tanzania exported coal worth $141.6Million in the year ending November 2022.

It was a 972% jump, from the $13.2Million exported in the corresponding period in 2021, “largely explained by the rising demand for alternative sources of energy following the short supply of crude oil and natural gas amid the war in Ukraine”, a newsletter by Tanzaniainvest.com argues.

“Most of the coal was destined to neighboring countries including Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda; and other countries including Poland, Hong Kong, India, and Senegal”, the newsletter explains.
