Finally, DP World takes over Dar port investment portfolio

By Lake Zone Watch writer

President Samia Suluhu Hassan has said that the signed Dar port investment agreements have taken into account the views aired by the various community groups, including the country’s laws and procedures.

She has said the government heard the various views expressed by the Tanganyika Law Society (TLS), political parties, civil society organisations, activists, media, social media, religious leaders and some retired prominent leaders.

The president said this after the signing of three investment agreements for Dar es Salaam port between the Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) and DP World at an event held at the State House in Dodoma yesterday.

She said the agreements were a result of earlier discussions between the government and Dubai Authority, who endorsed the needs and requirements as articulated in favour of national interests.

The signed deals are Host Government Agreement, Lease Agreement and the Concession Agreement, all aimed at strengthening economic activities at Dar port and generally boosting internal as well as external trade with neighbouring countries using the Tanzanian gateway.
