Dar intensifies its exchanges with the East African Community (EAC), the Southern African Development Community (SADC)

The Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) stated that there has been an increase in trade between Tanzania and countries of the East African Community (CAE) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) since the arrival in power of the Sixth Phase Government. TPSF President Angelina Ngalula made the remarks when she met yesterday with Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation in East Africa, Ambassador Liberata Mulamula in Dar es Salaam.

She said that trade and bilateral relations between Tanzania and neighboring countries like Kenya, Uganda and Burundi have intensified, thanks to the growth of economic diplomacy. “Trade between Tanzania and other countries in the region has witnessed remarkable growth in the short time since the sixth phase government came to power,” she said, adding that this means the government actively involves the private sector to stimulate business and attract investment.

“The friendly environment created by the government with the private sector has contributed immensely to the improvement of trade between Tanzania and the CAE and SADC countries. ”Ms. Ngalula welcomed President Samia Suluhu Hassan’s decision to include investors and businessmen from TPSF during her visits to some of these countries which have helped her to meet their counterparts. For her part, Minister Mulamula assured the TPSF friendly government relations, based on the belief that the private sector is the engine of economic growth. Amb. Mulamula asked TPSF to ensure that they establish a database to facilitate the government’s plan to connect the private sector and business people as well as with foreign investors.

In another development, Amb. Mulamula spoke with Mr. Stefan Oswald, Head of the Africa Department at the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. Dr Oswald told Minister Mulamula that Tanzania is the first country to be visited by Federal Foreign Ministry officials due to the positive sign of changes on issues related to diplomacy and development relations with other nations of the world shown by President Samia Suluhu Hassan.

He said talks between President Samia and German Chancellor Anjela Merkel, focused on creating a favorable investment climate, prompted the visit of officials from the Federal Foreign Ministry. He said Germany was ready to cooperate with Tanzania and other African countries to improve their economies due to the effects of COVID-19.
