By Lake Zone Watch Writer

Tanzania and Indonesia have signed a couple of trade and investment accords, with the latter showing readiness to revive its Centre for Rural Farmers Training Centre (FARTC) which was built in 1996 at Mkindo in Morogoro Region.

Addressing a joint press conference in Dar es Salaam yesterday, President Samia Suluhu Hassan and her Indonesian counterpart Joko Widodo agreed to strengthen trade and investments by bringing together Public and Private sectors in order to boost production.

The two countries signed seven MoUs on Security, Energy, Agriculture, Fisheries and the Blue economy, mining and diplomatic visa exemption.

Meanwhile President Samia has said Tanzania is keen to learn from Indonesia on her experience as the biggest producer of palm oil in the world.
At the same time Tanzania is re-energizing herself in order to produce sufficient edible oils and stop relying on imports.
