A group of Tanzanian business people under the umbrella of the Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) are planning a business mission to China to sell Tanzania’s investment opportunities to Chinese investors.
The “matchmaking” mission will seek to mitigate the challenges emerging and existing enterprises in the country face as they try to form strategic partnerships with foreign investors, including the Chinese.
Some of the bottlenecks include lack of information and inaccessibility to markets.
Through TPSF’s large networks of business partners in China, the trade mission is designed to enable Tanzanian entrepreneurs understand Chinese markets better and to form partnerships for future business transactions and investment opportunities.
The group will attend the China-Tanzania Business Forum in Guangzhou where they will get an opportunity to showcase their projects to potential investment partners.
The entrepreneurs are scheduled to attend the 2nd China-Africa SMEs Convention, a platform that gathers over one thousand Chinese and African companies in Shanghai, China for small African businesses to learn from their Chinese counterparts and trade and partner with them.
The Tanzanian mission will also attend the Canton Fair, the largest import and export trade fair in China to gain an overview of the industry and market.
They will also take part in training sessions, B2B meetings, industrial and market visits.
The Tanzania Business Mission to China will take place between 10th and 20th April 2017.
