Sweden Gives U.S$ 5 Million to Boost Horticulture in Tanzania

Tanzania Horticulture Association's (TAHA) efforts to boost horticultural production in the country have attracted a five million US dollar (over 10bn/-) funding from Sweden. Speaking shortly after signing the five-year deal, the Deputy Head of Mission responsible for Development Corporation Division (DCD) at the Swedish Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Mr Ulf Källsting said the funding will straight go to improve production by small holder farmers struggling to meet international market standards. The support that comes from DCD will see the horticulture sector doubling its contribution to the nation's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to from 542 million US dollars to one billion dollars. Mr Källsting said the funding was in line with the government's industrialisation drive, adding: "We want to add more value to farmers."
