The French government agreed on Tuesday (January 22nd) to renew development projects in Tanzania for three more years, Tanzania's Daily News reported.
President Jakaya Kikwete and Dov Zerah, chief executive officer of the French Development Agency, agreed to extend agreements to renew clean water projects that existed from 2006 to 2010, according to a statement issued by the Directorate of Presidential Communications in Dar es Salaam.
"We are ready to partner with you in fostering the agreement efforts to help people develop," Zerah told Kikwete. "I agree with you that we should launch a new programme to last for two or three years as you proposed."
Under the previous agreement, Tanzania received 82 billion shilling ($51 million) for clean water projects in Utete, Mpwapwa and other towns around Lake Victoria.
