EU offers to boost Tanzanian transport sector

The European Union (EU) has committed itself to working with the ministry of Transport to solve the challenges that are now facing the transportation sector in the country. The intervention would be directed towards solving the problems currently facing the Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA), thus increasing the speed of operations especially at the Dar es Salaam port.

The head of the European Commission in Tanzania, Ambassador Tim Clarke, said in Dar es Salaam that the port had the potential of being a leader in the country's economy by creating higher incomes and job opportunities. He noted that it was important that efforts to improve its operations are supported. He also pointed out the importance of the port for East African regional integration.

"The European Union has interest in helping you get over the challenges, and I want to assure you that a win-win situation will be achieved by both parties...the operations here (at the port) are very complex but I am sure we will overcome these challenges," Ambassador Clarke said.
