The Economic Society of Tanzania (EST) is a non-profit organization of economists and other professionals interested in economics as well as promoting economic research and economic policy advocacy. EST brings together members of the economics profession in academia, research institutes, the government and business sectors and provides a platform for discussions on issues facing the Tanzania economy and the region.

EST was formally launched in 1966 registered as society under The Society Act, Cap 337 and was given registration number SO 5198.
