The newly re-elected Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture (TCCIA) President Aloyce Mwamanga, has called for a timely and efficient implementation of ‘Kilimo Kwanza’ through smart partnership at various levels.
Speaking in an interview with this paper in Dar es Salaam after he was unanimously re-elected for another three-year term, Mwamanga said a qualitative and quantitative implementation of the initiative should not only be wished, but also effected timely to turn the country into prosperity.
He said as the government correctively tried to effect better life for all, each and everyone should play their party in carrying out the campaign for the success of the nation.
"May I, at this juncture appeal for more cooperation in TCCIA to ensure timely and effective implementation of our plans in order to bring about meaningful change to this business lobby," he urged.
He said members ought to dedicate more efforts in the development of the lobby and to ensure that it assists the nation’s initiative in carrying out the programme of ‘Kilimo Kwanza’.
On the role played by media practioneers in propagating business news, the TCCIA President said it should keep raising the awareness of the people that better life could not come on a silver plate but through struggling.
He commended The Guardian for publishing a weekly pull out on ‘Kilimo Kwanza’.
During the election of the TCCIA leadership last Saturday, besides the chairman, others who were elected included the vice chairpersons namely Edgar Nkunda - responsible for Industries, Peter Lanya (Agriculture), William Gibone (Trade) and Flora Kasambala (Treasurer).
Six councillors were also elected namely Margreth Ringo, Lulu Mengele, Maria Silla, Gozbert Kakiziba,
Martin Gabone and Hellen Tusiime.
