Under the first appointed Governor General, von Liebert, the country's infrastructure was organised with administrative centres, schools, hospitals and other social facilities and roads, ports and Railways.
The l,250km long Central Line (Mittelland Bahn) between Dar es Salaam and Lake Tanganyika surveyed in 1894 was started in 1906, reached Tabora in 1912 and Kigorna in February 1914. The Usambara railway linking Tanga to Moshi (Nord Bahn) was built to develop trade with the northern plantations and was completed in 1911.
After that and until the outbreak of World War I, attention turned towards agriculture with the development of cotton, coffee, sisal and rubber plantations.
With the introduction of the railway network the Asian merchants consolidated their trade by installing themselves all over the interior of the country.
