A word from Our Chairperson


Dr. Jacqueline Mkindi

The recent transformative initiatives undertaken by the government of Tanzania under the leadership of President HE Dr. Samia Suluhu Hassan have ushered in a new era for the country's agricultural sector. These developments present vast opportunities for substantial growth in this pivotal economic sector, promising to generate employment opportunities and alleviate poverty.
The ongoing evolution of agriculture in Tanzania has also injected fresh vigor into the drive to stimulate private investments, both domestically and from abroad. This surge in investment aims to elevate productivity levels, ensure food security, and foster an inclusive economy. ACT encourages all stakeholders to actively participate in shaping this promising future.
