Tanzania: RC Wants Councils to Employ Investment Officers

Tanga — TANGA Regional Commissioner Ms Chiku Galawa has said that from now on every district council in the region should have investment officers who would mainly deal with investment matters in order to do away with bureaucracy when visitors come to invest in the region.

She said the move was part of steps being taken by the regional government to make sure that the resolutions reached by the Northern zone economic forum held in Tanga city recently were put into practice in order to bear fruit.

The regional boss was commenting on the strategic plan which the regional government had come up with in efforts to fulfill the resolutions reached at the investment forum.

She said the forum was successful, but warned that for tangible results to be seen further steps were needed to make sure the already started efforts to welcome investors in northern zone and Tanga region in particular became a dream come true.

She added that following the investment forum, many prospective investors would show up for investment purposes, thus to facilitate the investors there must be a person who would at all time be available and provide precise and quick service to the investors.

She said the investment officer would also be in charge of making a follow-ups on the reached resolutions to ensure they were met and find the best way how the resolutions could be implemented by their respective district councils.
