A word from Our Chairperson

Recent transformation in Tanzania’s agricultural sector by the government of the day under President HE Dr. Samia Suluhu Hassan, offers enormous opportunities for the key economic sector to grow by leaps and bounds for job creation and poverty reduction. The current trend in agriculture also offers a new impetus to catalyze private investment, both local and foreign, to attain higher productivity, food security and an inclusive economy.
