The official Business Facilitation Portal system is live.

The EPZ Authority on December 8, 2023, for the first time has released the Investment Facilitation System designed to support investors on receiving daily services from EPZA. The system is known as EPZA Business Facilitation Portal, This system is designed with the intention of managing, facilitating and custody all information related to investors. It is one of the government target to digitalize investment services since the President of the United Republic of Tanzania, Hon. Dr. Samia Suluhu Hassan came to power and her vision of taking the country to the next level of development.

Speaking during the opening of the system, the Director General of EPZA Mr. Charles Jackson Itembe has said that, through the system, investors will get services from EPZA anywhere in the world regardless of the country, continent and region they are in because all services will be available at their fingertips without the investor having to go to EPZA offices to get services.

Mr. Itembe has said that the system is aimed at increasing the efficiency of providing quality services to investors, reducing the costs of providing these services and also reducing the costs of providing these services to investors and saving time.

It should be noted that one of the goals of EPZA is to register industries, particularly export oriented manufacturing, to encourage the processing of locally available raw materials, create employment opportunities, and stimulate the economy that brings foreign currency to the country. In order to achieve these goals, EPZA has established a special system that will help investors to know the available opportunities, the areas where they are available in the country and all the necessary procedures to take advantage of those opportunities regardless of where the investor is located.

It is EPZA's hope after the establishment of this system is to attract more investment from local and international business community and contribute to the country economic growth.
