A Tanzanian trade and investment delegation is due in Yemen this month to implement help enhance trade between the two countries, a recommendation reached at recent meeting of the Yemeni-Tanzanian joint committee.
Trade sources in Sana’a have said the Tanzanian trade and industry minister would head a delegation comprising a group of businessmen for talks with Yemeni chambers of commerce and industry.
The upcoming talks are expected to discuss consolidation of the two countries, tourism, agricultural sectors, as well as other traditional industries.
The visiting delegation will also meet with senior officials to help carry out economic agreements the two governments concluded in 2002.
Yemen hopes to export oil products, fruits and vegetables to Tanzanian markets and to import Tanzanian animals, meats and some agricultural products.
The Tanzanian delegation is also expected to conduct discussions with Yemeni chambers of commerce and industry for studying opportunities for investment partnerships between their respective private sectors.
