On his side the EU High Commissioner, Mr Roeland Vancle Geer said the EU has projected to invest in Tanga port infrastructure development in order to ease the trade between the EU and Tanzania through Tanga.
Mr Geer, who led the delegation of twelve ambassadors from EU member states to Tanzania, said that they have decided to visit Tanga to see port developments and other opportunities, so that business people from their countries would come to invest.
He said Tanga has a great opportunity to attract prospective investors, following the presence of a big pipe line project that would open up the way to various economic opportunities.
He however said that the development of port infrastructure was necessary as through port facilities the business could be easily facilitated, because it is a major route for importation and exportation of goods.
