Tanzania Gets EU Funding for Sunflower

The European Union (EU) has released 30 per cent of €1.4 million to support Tanzania's efforts to achieve regional industrial competitiveness. The aims are to increase value addition and upgrade the sunflower value chain programme as tariffs and non-tariff barriers have been biting. "We operate in a difficult condition," Tanzania Sunflower Process Association chairman Ringo Iringo laments. He urged the government to intervene to have quality sunflowers. The communications officer at the EU Delegation in Tanzania, Ms Sussane Mbise, told The Citizen that 30 per cent of €1.4 million had already been disbursed in accordance with the contract. "This is for the support to Tanzania's regional industrial competitiveness through increased value addition and upgrading of the sunflower chain programme." Tanzania and EU signed a trade-related facility contract worth €1.4 million as part of efforts to strengthen the value addition of agricultural products and minerals. This is line with the industrialisation drive. The deal aims at increasing the share of domestically produced sunflower oil to reduce imports.
