Dar to Get 12bn/ – EU Grant for Mineral Survey

The EU has pledged to provide Tanzania with a €4m about grant to fund surveying and research of minerals in the country. This pledge was made during discussions with Minister of State in the Presidents Office (Planning and Investment), Prof. Kitila Mkumbo and the Director General of the EU Department for International Partnerships, Mr. Koen Doens held in Brussels, Belgium. The research will focus primarily on critical minerals currently in high demand globally with Tanzania being rich in these resources. The participation of the Tanzanian delegation in this mining meeting was part of the Tanzania-Belgium Business and Investment Forum held in Brussels recently. The Forum was also used to showcase Tanzanian products and provide national ID services to the Tanzanian diaspora in Belgium and neighbouring areas. Apart from the National Identification Authority other public and private organisations had the opportunity to showcase their services to the diaspora.
