“Kilimo Kwanza”, a challenge to Tanzania’s engineers.

This year’s theme has became a great challenge to engineers as the country has adopted the policy towards ensuring excellence on agro-activities throughout the country. Engineers have a greater role to play for its success.

Engineering is among the noble professions that have the privilege and responsibility of self regulation. The Board has worked out a Code of Ethics which aims at regulating the engineering activities and conduct of engineers and engineering consulting firms. The Code thus forms the basis and framework for responsible professional practice as it prescribes standards of conduct to be observed by engineers and engineering consulting firms. The Board also promotes innovativeness among local engineers as well as the use of affordable technologies and locally available materials.

After the early presentations, the guest of honour Engineer Omary Chambo was taken round various stands at the exhibitions to see for himself what engineering firms are doing in the country

Dr. Adelhelm Meru who is the Director General of the Economic Processing Zones Authority (EPZA) in the country was among the key speakers during the occasion. He is hereby seen walking around the corridor to see what engineers came with in their various stands.
