Re-opening the Tanzania corridor to help Uganda increase Efficiency- Tanzania Ports Authority
- Tanzania Ports Authority director general, Deusdedit Kakoko says re- opening the central corridor will help Uganda increase her efficiency in trade and economic development and also create competition with the Northern route through Kenya which is good for trade.
Deusdedit said this during a meeting at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel as the delegation of officials from the Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA), the Tanzania Railway Authority (TRA) and the Marine services company (MSC) recently visited Uganda to seek trade opportunities with Ugandan business men.
The delegation met with officials from the Uganda Shippers’ council, the Kampala City Traders’ Association and Eco bank to discuss trade relations. Their visit comes at a time when Tanzania is aggressively seeking to revive trade with Uganda, which fell from 30% about ten years ago to 3%.
