The Embassy of the United Republic of Tanzania in the Nordic Countries, Baltic States and Ukraine is planning to hold a webinar on manufacturing and industrial investment opportunities in Tanzania. The webinar will be organized in partnership with the Tanzania Investment Center (TIC), The Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA) and the Swedish East African Chamber of Commerce (SWEACC).

Through the planned webinar and networking, The Embassy, TIC, TCCIA and SWEACC will identify and welcome Nordic, Baltic and Ukrainian manufacturers and industrial developers to showcase for shifting production base from the Nordic and Baltic Countries and Ukraine to Tanzania. This move by the Embassy is towards the implementation of Tanzania’s Integrated Industrial Development Strategy 2025 (IIDS 2025).

The aim of the webinar will be to inform the Nordic/Baltic/Ukraine industrial/manufacturing investors of the opportunities available in Tanzania, to identify and shortlist interested companies and to initiate networking or matchmaking process. This process should result in a number of partnerships with local investors as well as a direct investment to Tanzania in 2021/2022.

Registration for this webinar has been closed at 18:00 18.11.2020!
