TPSF Vice Chairperson Mr. Paul Makanza together with Permanent Secretary Ministry of Industry & Trade Mr. Dotto James, TNBC, CTI and other PSOs and Government agencies had a meeting at TNBC offices. The meeting was an opportunity for Mr. James to share news with Private Sector stakeholders on the recent 1 trillion TSH (approx.) the Government of Tanzania has received from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to support Tanzania’s economy in recovering from the impact of COVID-19. The fund will focus on supporting four key sectors which include; Health, Education, Tourism and Water. The fund will also give priority to Tanzanian small and medium enterprises to take part in applying for Government projects and tenders – specially in industries such as roofing, steel/metalworks, piping for water and sewerage systems, electricity and construction material. Private sector stakeholders have been urged to take advantage of this opportunity and prepare themselves to access these funds and provide products of high quality.
