Visit of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency
From 10th -18th November 2016 The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) was on mission to Tanzania, with representatives from The Development Related Infrastructure Program (ORIO/DRIVE/D2B) and from The Sustainable Water Fund (FDW). The goal of their visit is to get informed on the status of running projects and identify new project opportunities.
The Netherlands and Tanzania are working on several infrastructure-related projects. An example of a currently running ORIO project is the rehabilitation of Kilimanjaro Airport. Similarly, Dutch companies are currently working on rural electrification projects in three districts in Tanzania and an ORIO project for medical equipment for diagnosis. Another ORIO project was the renovation of Zanzibar Mnazi Mmoja hospital: ORIO representatives were present at the official opening on November 11th.
Apart from these examples, there are many more opportunities for Dutch companies in Tanzania. In the light of the joined visit of RVO, ORIO/DRIVE/D2B and FDW, the Embassy organised a networking event on November 15th. Dutch businesses were informed about possible business instruments and public-private partnerships. Presentations from RVO, FDW, D2B and DRIVE are now publicly available on our website.
