The officials of the Tanzania Investment Centre and those of Tanzania Chamber of Commerce had a discussion with Pakistan businessmen.
Mr Amir Khan, the Pakistani charge d’ affaires to Tanzania said, “Another delegation of investors is expected in Tanzania anytime for talks with government officials, although Tanzania has no high commission in Pakistan, our people have been seeking visas from our office in Dar es Salaam to explore business opportunities in Tanzania.”
In 2005, Pakistan faced serious financial constraints, prompting it to close its high commission to Tanzania, but we reconsidered the decision and reopened it. We would like Tanzania to open its high commission in our country so that we can increase bilateral trade relations.” Mr Khan elaborated.
Mr. Khan insisted on the willingness of Pakistan investing in Tanzania, but visa hurdles is a wall block.
Further he said Tanzania had been cited as a food basket in East Africa and could become a major food exporter.
Pakistan wants to strengthen economic, political and commercial relationships with Tanzania so as the countries to benefit from it.
