Transport is an essential service for both economic and noneconomic activities. Growth in agriculture and industrial production,trade, national political integration, national defence and administrative
activities all involve the movement of people, goods and services. This sector remains one of the most important,although its contribution to total GDP is small compared to other sectors like agriculture.
The relatively small contribution to the national GDP does not mean that it is not important. The efficient running of trade, agricultural and industrial sectors greatly depend on the efficient operation of
transport, communication and energy resources.Mwanza region is connected to other parts of the country by road,rail, water and air networks. However, the region is only weakly integrated into the
national road network. The major problem area is the absence of a national link to the north-eastern area of Arusha,Moshi and Tanga and the extremely bad conditions of the present gravel roads. The
above situation has hampered the development of the region. The remote location of the region compared to the country's market center of gravity means long and costly transport.This fact, in one way or
another, has negatively influenced the growth rate of industrial expansion compared to regions like Arusha,Morogoro and Mbeya which are well connected.
