TCCIA: Make use of trade pact

From The Citizen, Dar es Salaam
By Jane Kajoki, Mwanza

Mwanza Region has benefited from EPA funds by improving the infrastructure and producing quality cotton, dubbed 'white gold' in the region.

Members of the business community here have been urged to exploit opportunities offered by the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) to bolster their enterprises and invigorate the country's economy.

The private sector development advisor with Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA), Mwanza chapter, Mr Tamim Amijee, said they are also entitled to support from the agreement.

He said they could obtain funds from the European Union (EU) and African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) trade regime if they devised reasonable business plans.
