President Magufuli to Chair the 10th TNBC Meeting

This is the first TNBC meeting to be chaired by the President of the United Republic of Tanzania H.E John Pombe Magufuli since he came into power a year ago.

Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) is delighted to inform its members and the general public that the 10th Tanzania National Business Council (TNBC) meeting will be held on Saturday, May 06, 2017 at the State House Conference Hall under the chairmanship of H.E. Dr John Pombe Magufuli, the President of the United Republic of Tanzania.

As you are aware, the TNBC is the 40-members dialogue mechanism with equal representation from both the private sector as well as the Government. The current representation from government is composed of Cabinet Ministers, Attorney General and Governor of the Central Bank. Private sector representations include Board Members to TPSF who emanate from sector apex bodies and other key representatives of investors, business leaders, small scale entrepreneurs as well as large industries.

The agenda for the meeting will be

(i) Update on Business Environment, since the 9th TNBC meeting held in 2015

(ii) Policy measures to fast track industrialization & development of Industrial Parks in Tanzania

(iii) Transformation of Agriculture and

(iv) Establishment of official Ministerial Public Private Dialogue structures.

It is our expectation that the 10th TNBC meeting will provide an opportunity to strengthen private sector relations with the government, cement on the role of dialogue in creating conducive business environment and creation of coherent strategy toward achieving industrialization by 2025.

In addition to the above, the Board of TPSF has requested for a session after the TNBC meeting in which H.E. the President will meet and address the business community.  Once confirmed the formal invitations will be sent to the active member of TPSF.

We look forward to update you on the status of this request.
