25 Tanzanian engineers to learn new skills in China

A total of 25 Tanzanian engineers have left for China to attend a one-month capacity building training on implementing big construction projects.

The trip, organised by Group Six International Limited, was facilitated by the Government of the People’s Republic of China.

Group Six International Limited Finance Director, Mr Wu Wein Bin said the training will offer the Tanzanian engineers new skills on engineering, so as to increase their efficiency.

He said the good relation between Tanzania and China has led to the Chinese Government to sponsor those Tanzanians to go to China to acquire training on managing big projects including construction of roads, bridges and buildings as well as being exposed on new technologies in the sector.

“The aim of the Group Six International in collaboration with the China-based Chongqing Vocational Institute of Engineering yis to offer training to a total of 300 Tanzanian engineers,” Mr Wu said.

On his part, the company’s Deputy Director, Yi Xiabo noted that the training will focus on technological revolution.

“The group will also get an opportunity to observe how modern equipment operated,” Mr Yi said.

One of beneficiaries from the Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT), Dr Shija Kazumba, argued that the training will be very useful for Tanzanians.

Dr Kazumba said the training will give them an opportunity to learn how China managed to reach that far in terms of technological growth and management of major projects.

Commenting, quantity surveyor from the National Housing Corporation, Ms Anna Soya, described the opportunity as catalyst for them.

‘This training will build our capacity in managing big projects which are ongoing or expected to kick off, including bridges, roads and big buildings,” Ms Soya said.

Since 2018 the Group Six International Ltd has been sending Tanzanian experts to China for capacity building on construction industry.
