Tanzania businesses are set to benefit from vast opportunities by hosting the Region Africa and Middle East meeting (RAME) which will bring together over 300 participants in freight forwarding industry.
The international conference will be attended by senior clearing agents, freight forwarders, business delegates in addition to government officials, ambassadors and trade representatives from Africa and Middle East and beyond.
The meeting is an opportunity for any organisation with an interest in freight forwarding to network and make business connections, according to President of Tanzania Freight Forwarders Association (TAFFA), Mr Stephen Ngatunga.
Having a high profile event such as RAME will go a long way towards improving and marketing businesses further. We want to show the world that Tanzania is an ideal gateway for regional trade, Mr Ngatunga told a news conference in Dar es Salaam2 yesterday.
With a theme; Towards more sustainable regional freight forwarding partnerships, the forum comes at a time when Tanzania is embarking on an expansion and modernisation of ports and railway lines.
There are vast opportunities for business growth to be unlocked in Tanzania in terms of clearing and freight forwarding if neighbouring landlocked countries use Dar es Salaam port through the central corridor as transportation hub, the TAFFA boss observed.
