In June 2016, the Fifth phase of the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania, led by His Excellency John Pombe Joseph Magufuli, launched the Five Year Development Plan (2016/17-2020/21) with the Theme “Nurturing Industrialization for Economic Transformation and Human Development”. The first and foremost objective of the plan is to build a base for transforming Tanzania into a semi-industrialized nation by 2025 while placing the private sector as the engine of growth and development. As such, in addition to emphasizing on production, it is also necessary to establish sustainable markets for the country’s industrial products.
The abundant natural resources that exist in Tanzania coupled by the political will of the current government to move towards an industrial economy provides a greater potential for growth of industrial products which can be penetrated to the regional market. However, despite its proximity and existing trade agreements such as the EAC Common Market, many Tanzanian products have not managed to penetrate the EAC market.
In view of that, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and East Africa Cooperation in the implementation of the country’s Foreign Policy that focuses on Economic Diplomacy is seeking to pursue wider and broader markets opportunities for the country’s industrial products in the EAC starting with Kenya.
The Made in Tanzania Week in Kenya is an initiative of the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania together with its various Ministries, Agencies and Private Sector institutions aimed at not only promoting products and services Made in Tanzania but to also to strengthen Economic relation between the Two countries of United Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Kenya.
The “Made in Tanzania Week” to be held in Nairobi will feature Industrial products, services, technology, Agribusiness, Culture, Arts and Craft. This 4 days intense packed event will be held from 25th to 28th April 2018 which also falls within the Tanzanian National Holiday celebration of 54th Union Day on 26th April 2018.
