"Tanzania, is no doubt, a great place to invest in Africa today. There are unlimited investment and business opportunities which you are invited to explore.
For over the past decade we have put in place the most conducive investment environment you can think of. We have flung our doors wide open for anyone interested to bring his money and do business with us in Tanzania. There are no restrictions or preconditions attached. You just bring your capital, Technology and Management Skills, and you do business.
In addition, Tanzania is a gateway to six landlocked countries in Eastern and Central Africa. It provides natural access to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, Malawi and Uganda. Investing in Tanzania therefore gives you the advantage and opportunity to access markets in all these countries. On behalf of the People of Tanzania, I extend a warm Welcome!"
Dr. John Pombe Magufuli
President of the United Republic of Tanzania
