Tanzania prepares to invest in upgrading its transport systems

13 August 2009

Bloomberg reports that over the next five years Tanzania will be investing close on 5 billion Dollars in upgrading its transport systems.

This first renewal project forms part of the first phase of the investment programme dedicated to the country’s transport structure.

This will allow for the development of roads, ports, airports, ferries, and railway lines for the benefit of the Tanzanian nation.

According to Shukuru Kawambwa, Tanzanian Minister of Infrastructure Development, between now and 2018 “all national highways will be hard surfaced, which will allow all our regional centres to be linked by hard surfaced roads”.

He also added that in order for this system to be successfully developed in its entirety the Tanzanian Government will need to work together with private investors.<br/>
