Foreign Direct Investments And Technology Transfer In Tanzania: A Case Study Of Geita Gold Mining

ABSTRACT

The study investigated the role of FDIs in transfer of technology to indigenous in Tanzania. The study assessed the impact Geita Gold Mining (GGM) in transfer of technology to artisanal and small scale miners (ASMs) in Geita district, specifically in Lwamgasa ASM centre. The study employed a case study design in which data were collected as both qualitative and quantitative through, survey, interview, and observation. The sample of 97 ASMs and 4 mining technicians from Geita Minerals residential office was used. Data were analyzed as descriptive statistics in frequencies and percentages by the help of Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS-IBM 20).Qualitative analysis was done through thematic and content analysis where the researcher interpreted the themes and contents during the interview and observation to gain the meaning of the information. The field data showed that ASM is still characterized by crude technology, labour intensity, time intensity, high environment and hazards occurrence and poor productivity despite Geita Gold Mining existing in the district since 2000.This indicates that little or no technology transfer has occurred from GGM to ASMs in Lwamgasa. This low transfer is attributed to poor implementation and enforcement of the mineral sector policy’s objective which outlines the need for LSMs to provide geological and technical support to ASMs.
