Dar es Salaam. Industry, Trade and Investment Minister Charles Mwijage wants members of the business community to cooperate with the government in turning Tanzania into an industrialised middle income country.

Inaugurating the new board of directors of the Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF), Mr Mwijage said Tanzania’s goal is become an industrialised middle income country by 2025, a goal that will be easily achieved if both the public and private sectors worked together.

“The task ahead of transforming the country’s economy relies heavily on all of us. Let’s join hands by working hard towards a common goal,” Mr Mwijage said.

TPSF’s new chairman Salum Shamte takes over from Reginald Mengi who has completed his tenure. Mr Shamte, who has been involved in agri-business for over 40 years, will work closely with the new vice chairperson, Ms Angela Ngalula, the founder of Bravo Logistics.
