Tanzania government assures foreign investors of peace and stability
In any country in the world, foreign investors need to be protected and guided at all cost. They also need tlo be provided with a conducive environment of doing their businesses in the country. On top of that, foreign investors must be given all the necessary working facilities because their contribution is immense due to huge taxes they pay to the national coffers. In view of this, Tanzania is not left behind in the implementation of this idea. It is from these facts that, Tanzania’s Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa has assured foreign investors that Tanzania remains a peaceful country with rapidly growing economy. The Premier Majaliwa particularly commended the Aga Khan Institutions networks in the country for their noble roles in giving equal opportunities to the low income earners to participate in production to raise their standard of life, a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office said. Mr Majaliwa was speaking in Dar es Salaam at the 60th anniversary of His Highness the Aga Khan’s endorsement as leader of Shia Ismailia denomination in the world. Representing President John Magufuli at the event, the premier assured that the country appreciates the activities under Aga Khan Network, promising the government’s continued support. “I assure you that your investments in the country will turn into blessing because the country is peaceful and the economy is growing rapidly. I plead with you to invite all Shia Ismailia communities all over the world to come and invest because there are opportunities,” said the PM. The President of Shia Ismailia denomination in Tanzania, Amin Lakhani, thanked the government for existing good relation, promising to continue supporting various sectors in the country. He said the Aga Khan development network focuses in health, education and agriculture, running projects in the Africa and Asian continents and giving opportunity to low income earners to engage in production to improve their standard of life. Earlier, Ilala District Commissioner Sophia Mjema applauded the institution for its plan of expanding the hospital in the district as well as increasing the number of health centres to 35 from the previous 15.
