During the forum, Mr. Itembe seized the opportunity to extend a warm invitation to investors from around the world to consider Tanzania as a prime investment destination. He highlighted the recent policy reforms implemented by the government under the leadership of President Dr. Samia Suluhu Hassan, which have reshaped Tanzania's investment landscape, making it increasingly attractive to global investors.

Mr. Itembe emphasized the abundant opportunities available in Tanzania, particularly in the establishment of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) and joint ventures for the development of industrial parks.
